The Garfield Park Conservatory opened to the public in April 1908, and has been dazzling visitors with its extensive plant collection ever since. The Conservatory is open every day of the year, and admission is free (some events and exhibits have a suggested donation to enter). Free parking is available just south of the main entrance.
The Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance is a non-profit organization housed in the Conservatory, providing all the events, activities, workshops and programs. The Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance became a 501(c)3 organization in 2000.
