  • Visited this conservatory while in town visiting friends. It's a super cute little place and the way they light it up at night in the winter is pretty great. It's not super big but it's a nice way to spend an hour. When all of the palms grow in fully it will be a really great place. Would come back in the future if I got the chance too.
  • Great place for family fun! Love the different exhibits through the year. Staff is always friendly. This is one of our favorite places to spend time.
  • We have been here twice now. The staff is friendly the conservatory is lovely and we enjoyed both the Orchid and Butterfly exhibits. Will go back again and again.
  • A great recent addition to the Rockford Park District. Nice and warm in the middle of winter and very relaxing. Skating for free at the lagoon, weather permitting.
  • Nice in the winter for skating outside on the Lagoon. Also beautiful around the Xmas holiday with the trees all lit up.
