Volunteer Park Conservatory Reviews
주차공간 부터, 화장실,급수대, 벤치등의 편의시설과 트레일까지..정말 관리가 잘된 공원이었습니다. 무엇보다 이곳의 공기.. 미세먼지에 찌든 폐가 뻥 뚫리는 느낌이었습니다. more »From parking spaces to toilets, water fountains, benches and other facilities and trails. It was a really well-maintained park. Above all, the air here. I felt like my lungs were squeezing into the dust.
Took a 9 yr. old friend here. There are all sorts of strange cacti & other tropical plants! The docent was very helpful in pointing out interesting aspects of the various plants more »
This place is a little slice of heaven. Outside of the conservatory itself, the entire park is stunning. Inside there's an entry fee of $4 for an adult and $2 for a child. The building and the plants are so magnificent that you don't ever know where to look. Take your time! The seemingly endless layers of textures and colors are awe inspiring. Very carefully curated. There's a perfectly quaint little gift shop tucked into one side. Today they had an orchid sale. The people holding the sale were informative and friendly. The plants for sale were of excellent quality. There were only two very minor downsides. One is that the walkways inside are narrow which makes maneuvering wheelchairs and strollers a challenge. The second is that the little ticket machine is dated and takes a bit of patience. Regardless, it is still very worth the trip. I highly reccomend it.
A must go! Especially if you are all about plants and greenery! The place is very groomed, quiet, and all the plans just soothe the atmosphere. There is much to see in this conservatory. I really liked their cactus selection and the other unique plants. Lighting is also perfect for photos, if you’re into blogging or photography, that’s a perfect stop for you!
