Chicago's Garden Under Glass, the Garfield Park Conservatory was completed in 1907, and is one of the largest publicly owned conservatories in the United States. Located in the East Garfield Park community and situated on 14 acres, the Conservatory is divided into eight indoor display houses, three outdoor gardens, and 11 propagation houses. It includes eight water features, one of which is the Fern Room’s prairie waterfall designed by Jens Jensen, the Conservatory’s chief architect and designer. Today the Conservatory contains roughly 2,000 species and varieties of plants, many of which are valuable and rare, grown from roots, spores, or seeds acquired from all over the world. We host nearly 200,000 visitors per year and offer a variety of seasonal events and flower shows. Our Aroid House features a permanent Chihuly glass installation and our Fern Room reflects Jen Jensen's vision of primordial Chicago. We are free of charge and open 365 days per year. Parking is free as well.
