What is there to do?

If you are a family of nature lovers and just love those relaxing family days out surrounded by nature, then the Garfield Park Conservatory and Sunken Gardens might just be for you! 

This nature filled Indianapolis attraction is located within the very pretty 136 acres of Garfield Park. The attraction offers workshops, gardening demos, even talks and special events.

The events always range in topic - so keep an eye out! One day it might be Jungle Tales for the pre-schooler where they focus on the natural world as well as enjoying some crafts, and another day it might be Family Garden Day where you can create planters together that will encourage those pretty butterflies into your own garden at home!

The Garfield Park Conservatory itself houses around 10,000 square feet of plants from all around the world! The great thing about a conservatory, is even in winter it's always in full bloom! The displays are alway changing, and they always ensure kids will learn about what they are looking at too! 

Did you know that the Sunken Garden has been giving families a lovely day out since all the way back in 1916? It really has! Here you can explore 3 acres of European classical formal gardens - and they're very pretty! There are historic fountains to enjoy, paved walkways to stroll down, and benches where you can relax and enjoy some lunch!

The gardens have two different displays which change seasonally, so there is something new to see as the seasons change!

Nature is such a fun way to spend the day, and it's often overlooked, so try out the Garfield Park Conservatory and Sunken Gardens and enjoy what nature has created!
