Detail for Garfield Park : Park Conservatory






Garfield Park is named after James Garfield, 20th President of the U.S. ; it was completed in the 1870s. Total park area: 184 acres.

At one time, boating was a favorite pastime in the park, and many fountains were located throughout. Currently, attractions at the park include the Conservatory, which sports an impressive array of cactus, ferns, and many other varieties of plants. Several statues that were once located in the park have been moved to the conservatory. Tennis courts are also available for summer play.

The new Green line stop will definitely turn this area around. - sys, 12/11/2001

New changes at the Garfield Conservatory:
  • Garfield Market, featuring art from over a dozen artists
  • City Garden, an eliptical-shaped garden inspired by a designer Jens Jenson. Final phase will be completed in June 2005.

This park began as a vast swampy area, it was tranformed into Central Park in the mid 1800's, later renamed to Garfield Park.

This year the conservatory celebrates its 100th anniversary. - wm, 01/09/2008
