Oak Park Conservatory

615 Garfield St., Oak Park, IL 60304


Home to over 20,000 colorful plants, the Oak Park Conservatory is a botanical wonder begging to be explored.

Considered one of the top three historical sites in Oak Park and drawing up to 30,00 visitors annually, the Oak Park Conservatory is home to over 20,000 plants spread across its three showrooms: fern, tropical, and desert. Each greenhouse offers guests a unique mix of calming aromas and vibrant colors, while a rotating lineup of events - like Uncorked, a monthly wine event with local bites and live music - keep things lively on the conservatory's garden grounds.

Admission is free, though there is a $5 suggested donation.
