ABOUT THE LINCOLN PARK CONSERVATORY & GARDENS
Visit the Lincoln Park Conservatory and step into beauty and tranquility. Feel the clean, oxygen-rich air. Smell the fragrant tropical flowers. See ancient ferns and towering palms. Experience the charm of a Victorian Era glass house.
Built between 1890 and 1895, the historic Lincoln Park Conservatory displays lush, exotic plants from around the world in four display houses — The Palm House, Orchid House, Fern Room, and Show House.
After strolling the Conservatory's winding interior paths, venture outside to visit the Formal Garden, Bates Fountain, the Von Schiller Monument, the Old English-style Grandmother's Garden, and the Shakespeare Monument.
The Lincoln Park Conservatory outdoor gardens are planted in May and June each year, with peak viewing times in July and August, but displays last until mid-October.
The Lincoln Park Conservatory is managed by the Chicago Park District. Docent tours are available through the Lincoln Park Conservancy.
The Lincoln Park Conservatory building is open everyday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and admission is free.
