The Rockefeller Park Greenhouse is delightful any time of the year, but during the holiday season it is spectacular. A huge variety of poinsettias line the walkway which makes for a beautiful place for strolling around and taking pictures. Anytime in the winter it is...More

Hidden gem. There are nice outdoor gardens, including some used for educating students. Indoors are desert plants, tropical plants (get there when the lemons are in bloom--wonderful aroma), and orchids. There are special weekend shows, e.g., Bonsai, where you can get advice and purchase plants.

Not very big inside, but a nice respite on a dreary day. Free parking, free admission. If I lived closer, I would visit more.

The greenhouse is always a pleasant oasis to relax and enjoy the many plants and their seasonal exhibits. I've been going there since I was a child in the 1950's. A big bonus--it's free!

This is the City of Cleveland's greenhouse. When you walk past city property planted with annuals, very good chance they originated here, so it isn't a "tourist attraction" in the true sense, but a functioning department that just happens to include a beautiful park. I...More

Rockefeller Park greenhouse is an historic place in Cleveland, and one which looks like time has passed it by ... a bit ... but that's part of the attraction. No up-and-comer, this joint, it has been here a LONG long time. It is well-worn, leaky,...More
