Small but lovely!

We went on a weekday afternoon and had the place to ourselves! Free parking, and lovely outdoor gardens to take in as well!

We stopped by the Rockefeller Park Greenhouse on our last day in Cleveland. The jungle areas of the greenhouse were most interesting. It doesn't take a lot of time to look at everything but it is a nice stop during a day trip to the city.

This was a very nice greenhouse and gardens outside. We had just missed the Irises and inside it is small but nice. Too bad they don't have more sections opened up to see.

Need to see some green during the long, cold winter? Visit the Cleveland's Rockefeller Park Greenhouse for a free fix. The tropical plant room has orange, banana and grapefruit trees. There are many orchids and also themed seasonal exhibits. It's a lovely place.

This is a great, free, addition to your day if you are already visiting a museum on University Circle. I've gone here ever since I was a kid. A great little greenhouse with lots of beautiful flora. The grounds are beautiful in the summertime too. I wouldn't go out of my way to go here, it's not large enough for... More

It's free admission and the humidity inside is so nice. We have stopped in to the greenhouse several times over the last few years and always enjoy the fresh and moist air and the lovely plants. This trip we had a chance to speak to an employee who told us about their new heating system which was very interesting. A... More

I went with my grandchildren over Christmas break, as an alternative to the pricey and crowded Cleveland Botanical Garden. It was perfectly lovely. Not large, but large enough for a nice fern room, some display rooms filled with poinsettias, a nice desert garden (which the grandchildren particularly enjoyed) and lots of orchids. The kids also liked the full-grown citrus trees... More

We visited with two adults and two children (4,3). While there are a lot of plants from all over the world it really wasn't that interesting. We strolled around the area around the greenhouse and while it's always nice to be outside the grounds didn't seem to be well maintained. We drove 30 minutes to get here and it took... More

We were in from out of town and read the reviews for this greenhouse so decided to visit it. It's a nice little greenhouse, don't get me wrong, but it is not worth a trip out of the way. I can see where locals would enjoy a visit especially in the winter months, but visitors don't bother unless you're desperate... More

This is a great little place. Free! My kids like exploring and learned the life lesson of do not touch cacti. Very nice in late winter for a warm respite. Orchids are gorgeous, and in Spring the tulips are very pretty too.
