Remember this summer when Little Lulu and I went to check out the Sunken Gardens and Conservatory at Garfield Park (2505 Conservatory Drive, Indianapolis)? It was beautiful! You know the cool thing about a conservatory? It’s open year round and plants are growing indoors and it’s warm and it’s beautiful! RIGHT NOW you are going to want to take your whole family to enjoy the conservatory because it’s decorated with poinsettias and model trains that are running and traveling all around and through train villages amongst the gorgeous exotic plants and trees and thousands of twinkling lights!
The cost to see Conservatory Crossing is $3 per person or $8 for your entire family. Did I mention it’s warm in there? And they have a chocolate tree? And a vanilla ice cream tree? Hours are Monday – Saturday from 10am-5pm and Sundays from 1-5pm. On December 14th, 15th, 20th, 21st and 22nd, Conservatory Crossing will be open until 8pm for extended hours.
Want to check it out for free? Visit on Saturday, December 8th from 10am-1pm. Make toys with Santa’s elves at the Art Center and then have some tasty treats with Mrs. Claus at the Burrello Family Center. This whole event is free! What a deal and what a great opportunity to see so many of the amenities that Garfield Park has to offer!
