Small conservatory featuring a variety of plants. Free, with a suggestion donation of $3 as others mentioned. It would have been nice to have more signs identifying the plants. Giftshop has a variety of interesting treasures, be sure to stop by.

For the nature lover this is a must-see. The main building has quite a collection of plants. The outdoor park is beautiful for a Sunday stroll. Trees are marked with specie names and well over a hundred years old.

Wonderful conservatory with free admission, located along the north side of Wright Park. During Christmas, hundreds of poinsettias add color. It's a great place to visit during the dark and cool winter months, to feel some tropical warmth. Nice diversity of plants and well maintained...More
