Garfield Park Conseravtory – Chicago

On our Chicago trip today we went with our son (our daughter-in-law had performances all day) and grandsons to the Garfield Park Conservatory in west Chicago. It’s a huge building with lots of different temperature and humidity controlled rooms for different types of vegetation.

As we walked in we were met my a beautiful reflecting pond

Winter may have still been holding on ourside – low 40’s – but inside it was spring and summer at every turn.

We had a great time with the kids and we are looking forward to more fun outings in the coming days.
