A number of unusual plants...

We have lived in the Indianapolis area for over 40 years and never visited this park. The Conservatory was great...a number of very unique and unusual plant. Well worth the trip.

Lots to see and learn. Enjoy flowers and be surprised by the birds! Lots of places to walk and picnic. Very quiet and enjoyable.

I did a self-guided tour at the Garfield Park Conservatory. Remember to pick up the conservatory's plant collection where you match the number of the plant's label to the number in the guide. Monday-Friday 8:00a to view the sunken garden and conservatory.

Got about 1/4 of the way through the self guided tour of the Conservatory and had already killed 3 mosquitoes that had been biting me, I think I got bit by 2 more that got away. Had to turn around and leave the building. My brother-in-law completed the tour, but came out and complained about getting bitten around one ankle... More

My friend and I were are both avid gardeners, so couldn't pass up the chance to visit the conservatory. It was just beautiful inside that lovely glass building. I've never seen so many beautiful and lush plants and flowers in my life. It was a wonderful and relaxing experience! The sunken garden was okay, but I've seen better. But, just... More

It has always been beautiful and just neat place to take a walk; alone, as a couple or with the kids. Or in our place, with the grandkids now.

I've lived in Indy all my life and this is MY park! The sunken gardens have recently been renovated and are absolutely beautiful, and FREE! The amphitheater holds a variety of concerts throughout the summer. For nature lovers, walk through the park and find the wide variety of trees planted there. If you get too hot, take a swim in...

We went in the early spring and the fall. Not many flowers in bloom. Disappointing for a flower lover. The children's garden is a good idea.

I enjoyed the gardens and the conservatory but I was spoiled by Como Park in St. Paul. That one is HUGE and I am afraid I was expecting a little more

Pretty park and garden nestled close to downtown Indy. You wouldn't expect this hidden gem to be so close to downtown Indianapolis! There is a lot to do here. There is a community center with many family related activities, rental shelters for family gatherings, gardens, walking paths and a botanical garden you can wander through for a small $2 fee....
