A visit to a place of calm

This greenhouse offers the public a chance to move from the northwest ecology of the park to a humid environment with exotic plants. A nice mini vacation.

The exhibits at the conservatory change some with the season. It's a beautiful old conservatory and worth a trip. It's in Wright Park, which is a lovely spot.

I use to 'pop' in whenever I was walking in the Wright Park, with my children and/or grandchildren. I no longer do that as there is a $3 entry fee. It is a lovely example of Victorian Architecture (Conservatories) and has some welcome tropical blooms for the grey days that happen in this area. If it wasn't for the entry... More

This historic glass conservatory, though small in size, offers a large variety of plants and a wonderful relaxing experience.

After you have visited the great Tacoma attractions like Point Defiance Park, Zoo and Aquarium, the outstanding museums and the waterfront walk, visit this little diamond in Wright Park. This is a volunteer-maintained, low budget enterprise that depends on the modest, but not cheap, entry fee and donations. In comparison with some of the largest such structures, old and new,...

Just happened to drop in while at Wright park! Wow what a gem. Each time I have been here there is something new. If you Love plants and flowers this is the place to observe. It is very small but that just adds to the ambience. Very romantic and charming, even with little ones. When it is busy it does... More

There is a sense of peace and tranquility here which is relaxing, making it a perfect place to unwind after a hectic day, week, shopping melee...think of going when you just need to be by yourself in the city and take time to hunt out the charming antique statuary tucked in among the exotic plants. Even on a rainy day,... More

This is the tiniest botanical garden I have ever visited, but it is delightful and there are many interesting plants. Some of the plants seem exotic and others are just what you might find in your own back yard. The ladies in the gift shop did not seem to know much about the plants, but they were pleasant. Picture taking... More

The Conservatory has some great plants and provides the opportunity for interesting photos. It's much smaller than Seattle's Volunteer Conservatory and doesn't take long to view. However, it's right next to Wright Park, which is a nice family park with play areas, walking trails, picnic areas and a playground. In combination, it was a great way to spend a couple... More

This is one of the most beautiful and magical places. I wish I drew because I would be sitting on one of their benches with my drawing pad in hand...but instead I just walk very slowly, breathing in deeply of the fresh and full foliage air. Great little gift shop too.
