Lincoln Park Conservatory reopened in February and will bring its Spring Flower Show to a close this weekend.
The beloved conservatory on N. Stockton Drive reopened to the general public on Friday, March 26 having been closed for a year due to the implications of the coronavirus pandemic. Open just three days a week, on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, the conservatory has been operating with strict Covid-19 protocols including a reduced capacity and reduced hours.
Now, with the Spring Flower Show at Lincoln Park Conservatory winding up, the number of people who can enter was expanded in April and the conservatory will now stay open for longer each day.
According to the Chicago Park District website, “the Pretty in Pink Spring Flower Show celebrates this quintessential spring color and features azaleas, tulips, and cymbidium orchids ranging in hues from fuchsia to blush.”
The Flower Show will run until Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 9 filling the conservatory with the rosy glow of pink hydrangeas, lilies, and peonies.
Visitors need to pre-register for timed 60-minute admission tickets via the conservatory’s Eventbrite page. Though entry is free suggested admission donations of $10 for adults and $5 for children and seniors is encouraged to help maintain and staff the Conservatory. Blocks of tickets are released one week in advance every Friday.
