“Secret Garden”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Columbus Secret Garden and a nice place to spend an afternoon with yourself, family or friends. Botanicals in the conservatory are a good mix of old giants and new ones. Environmentalist happy place.

“Butterflies, flowers and fun”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Really enjoyed the plants and the opportunity to wander around with the butterflies. The kids got to hold and feed the butterflies. Beautiful selection of plants.

“Butterfly Exhibit”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

I was familiar with the Conservatory but had not attended until the Butterfly Exhibit opened in the summer. It was a wonderful experience to see all of the beautiful butterflies and flowers.

“Wedding Photographs”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Beautiful photo opportunities a short ways from downtown for wedding pictures. We took a trolley and did one stop at the conservatory. It was picturesque and great for walking/running.

The Franklin Park Conservatory is a place where you can enjoy nature at its best. The exhibits just plus the plants. It is a great place for a family visit.
