“Offering enjoyment of the natural world”
Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is a premier botanical landmark and cultural attraction featuring exceptional plant collections and gardens, seasonal art- and nature-based exhibitions, and a dynamic array of educational opportunities and special events for visitors of all ages. The Conservatory is situated in the 88-acre Franklin Park just two miles east of downtown Columbus. Featuring indoor gardens filled with exotic plant life and artwork, including a collection of glass works by artist Dale Chihuly, the Conservatory offers enjoyment of the natural world any time of the day or year. Outdoors, botanical gardens, art sculptures, open green space and a one-mile walking loop offer respite from everyday life. Central Ohio’s iconic sign of spring returns! Get an up-close view as hundreds of newly emerged butterflies are released into the Pacific Island Water Garden— a tropical haven where exotic butterflies of all sizes and colors fly freely and feed on nectar from colorful blooms. Learn about the fascinating life cycle and ecological importance of these amazing insects during daily educational presentations and related activities.
Went in 2017, very beautiful and spacious, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.
Park is under construction until fall 2018. Still an ok park to walk around but nothing to go out of your way for.
The best indoor botanical center I’ve been to. Great programming. Loaded with Chihuly glass work. Beautiful.
