  • We have lived in the Indianapolis area for over 40 years and never visited this park. The Conservatory was great...a number of very unique and unusual plant. Well worth the trip. 
  • Lots to see and learn. Enjoy flowers and be surprised by the birds! Lots of places to walk and picnic. Very quiet and enjoyable.

  • We were not able to enter the Conservatory due to closing for National Holiday. What we could see from the windows, the facility looks impressive. Will attempt to return another day. Was not impressed by the Sunken Gardens. Well maintained grounds, but would rather rename as Sunken Lawns. There is a lack of actual gardens and large grass lawns in place. The old photos show a more impressive garden than today's venture.
  • Love the experience. Beautiful zen full place , most def will try to come wkly 😘😘😘
  • Went through with my grand kids they loved it! !!
  • Went to the reptile and amphibian show and had a great time! We had never been to the conservatory before, so checking out the plants were an unexpected delight. It is a great place to take young kids because it is not too big and overwhelming for them.
  • Beautiful! I love the waterfall and the koi ponds. Such a lovey place!
