  • My daughter loves to bring any out of town visitors to see the parrots! I love the seeing all the different types of plants. Never to crowded.
  • The staff at the conservatory is great, very friendly, helpful and full of information. You can come see and learn about a variety of plants from different climates and, every once in a while, attend special events. There are activities for both kids and adults, and you can buy plants for you own home as well as plant-related books and toys for kids. Overall, a very fun and edicational experience!
  • We have been coming here for years and now I am bringing my daughter here. Very cute 3 room conservatory with beautiful views. They have birds, fish and turtles too. Great place for a quick outing especially on a rainy or winter day.
  • It is a cute and cozy conservatory. There are three main climates areas tropical, moderate and dry. They have a small gift shop but they sell plants there regularly along with kids books, little animal puppets and other various nature and gardening things. Very goegeous and a nice place to take little kids especially. Definitely see this one before going to the Garfield Conservatory because this one is small in comparison. Extremely awesome to stroll through though. There is also a little pound area in the tropic area along with 3 large parrots that are seperately roomed in cages. When weather permitting there are two outdoor areas. One is catered to younger kids as a hands garden area. The other is for relaxing and enjoying their outdoor sphere fountain decoration and patio area.
  • nice little getaway when the weather's horrid. cute little stream with a bridge and koi; some resident birds and cozy benches make it a serene place to catch your breath. little activity books for the kids too.
