Very unusual exotic plants & flowers
Jul 2021
The first thing we appreciated about this conservatory was its warmth. After walking around in foggy mist for most of the morning we needed a warm-up. But after that it was all plants and flowers - most of which were exotics. Several I have never seen before, and I have been in more than one conservatory! Lots to see in a very relaxed venue. Not exactly a place that would be comfortable for wheelchairs or perhaps people with mobility issues, since walkways are really narrow and the buildings get crowded. It also may not be the best place for really active or adventurous kids, for the same reason. $10 fee to enter. Rest rooms are outside, so you do not need to pay to go into the conservatory just to use rest rooms. Located at the northeastern end of the Park. FYI: From this point to Ocean Beach, by walking straight through the park on JFK Drive is @ 3.5 miles.

You can travel the botany globe within the walls of this historic building. It takes about 45 minutes out of your life and $10 out of your wallet but well worth the journey into this tropical paradise. This is an adventure for individuals or families. You will experience two different climates and many unusual plants, flowers and trees. They limit the amount of people so you won’t feel crowded.

Tough to access
Apr 2021 • Friends
Tried for 2 hours to reach the nearest place to drop my elderly mother off with her walker and then go park and meet her. Saturday morning the road closed to cars, which is great unless you are walking impaired. It was incredibly difficult to access and would not recommend if you are with someone who can’t walk well, unless you know the place and its quirks.

These grounds and greenhouse are well maintained with a great collection of flowers. My wife loved all the orchids. Easy to overlook this stop with so much else to see but definitely worth it.

An Oasis of Peace
Dec 2019
You need to buy a ticket to visit the Conservatory of Flowers on the John F Kennedy Drive within the large spaces of the Golden Gate Park. Ordinarily $9 for an adult, $6 for a Senior Citizen like me! It is divided into five distinct galleries. Each worth speaking time. A very quiet and relaxing place. Indeed an oasis of peace away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The flowers were beautiful and the conservatory, which by the way is 140 years old, is extremely well maintained. I must add for the benefit of senior citizens that there are rest rooms attached to this location.

This Victorian style greenhouse in the Golden Gate Park should not be missed. Beautiful orchids and carnivorous plants.

Beautiful Display

This is a great place for anyone who loves plants and flowers. Lots of exotic plants in this very big greenhouse, which is also significant piece of architecture. One of the many gems in the park.

Fun place to visit with family
Dec 2019
It was pouring rain during our visit, so we didn't get to see much of the outside. The indoor gardens were beautiful and interesting, and surprisingly held our toddler's attention for a solid few hours. The carnivorous plants and huge lily pads were highlights for us.

Take a leisurely walk through the many rooms and view some very beautiful plants. The 92 year old welcoming lady is a gem.
