An ever changing display of plants, flowers, and trees. This is a good place to learn about all that grows, or just browse and enjoy the beauty of mother nature while staying inside in a controlled environment. If you are into photography, there is a lot of subject matter here.

Interactive exhibits for the children. The theme garden was Mary Poppins and there were fun activities for the kids. Beautiful falls, plants. A return trip is in the stars.

The Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory, located in downtown Fort Wayne, is a real gem. Displays are changed frequently, so the gardens always have something in bloom. Don't miss out on the spring gardens--it smells absolutely divine!

During our wait to go to the Embassy Theatre, we killed some time in this quaint botanical garden. Very interesting array of plants from tropical to being in the desert. There were places to just and enjoy the plants, and even listen to the indoor waterfall

This is a wonderful spot--three separate areas with different climates and collections of plants, plus activities, space that can be rented for special events, and more! it's a part of the park department, and is assisted by a large group of volunteers, It would be hard to overstate what a gem this place is! Every spring there is a butterfly... More

We were here for the Christmas display and in addition to that, it was very educational. There were two reindeer outside for the children to see and Santa was there. Each of the 12 days of Christmas was exhibited on a Christmas tree and related decor

Few cities of Fort Wayne's size have an enclosed Botanical Conservatory. The product of local philanthropy and public support, the Foellinger-Freimann Botanilcal Conservatory offers three indoor spaces with a seasonal display, a tropical, and a dessert environment, In addition, they have developed an outdoor venue as well. As a local who works "downtown," it is a great place to decompress.... More
