As ever, the flower shower can be experienced completely free of charge!
As we enter March and hope that the worst of winter is behind us, signs of spring begin to emerge signaling that it’s the time of the year that things start looking up! Of the spring activities that begin announcing themselves, the flower shows at Chicago’s conservatories are some of the most eagerly anticipated. After the bleak months of Chicago’s notorious winter, there’s nothing we love more than sweet spring air and rows and rows of blossoming flowers.
The latest to announce a spring show is none other than West Side’s Garfield Park Conservatory. One of the world’s largest indoor gardens, Garfield Park Conservatory provides guests with a constantly evolving experience, completely free of charge. Around this time of the year, their flower show adds even more reason to pay a visit and this time around the conservatory has taken the show to new heights.
The Garfield Park Conservatory 2022 Spring Flower Show “Knock Knock” features a series of vintage hanging doors courtesy of Rebuilding Exchange and a plethora of beautiful blooming flowers, including tulips, hydrangeas, daffodils, and hyacinth. This year there will also be many plant-themed knock-knock jokes throughout the Show House as part of the playful reprieve from the long Chicago winter.
As ever the conservatory is free but reservations must be made in advance. Additional free reservation times have been set aside for Garfield Park residents and members. The Garfield Park Conservatory’s Spring Flower Show is now open and will stick around through Mother’s Day weekend on Sunday, May 8th.
