Garfield Park conservatory is one of Chicago's most sacred treasures. It's grand glass exterior sits quietly in the Garfield Park neighborhood just west of downtown Chicago. Designed by Jens Jensen and constructed in 1906, this place is truly magical. Having nature's landscape under glass is truly a treat. The conservatory has so much to offer for events big or small and even houses plant species that do not grow in the Midwest or even in the U.S. This is an amazing venue for your guests to explore and an even serves as an inspiring teaching tool for nature enthusiasts. GPC has eight impressive display houses and gorgeous outdoor gardens. The Desert House is the home to a varied assortment of fascinating cacti and succulents. The Fern Room includes lush ferns showing us what Illinois might have looked like a long time ago. The Palm room has this intoxicating smell of fresh palm trees. The Palms are so huge in size, you really feel like you are in another time! It's a very enchanting atmosphere. The Show House is where the fabulous flower shows take place in the Spring, Summer and Holiday seasons. This room is always so pretty and vibrant as it changes for the seasons. The evening Fotio was there, we were set up in the Horticulture Hall for a fundraising gala. The Horticulture hall is the main space they use for events and special gatherings like weddings and corporate events. Garfield Park Conservatory is truly one of Chicago's best venues with natural charm and a timeless feel! Thanks to Fotio photographer Rachel Smith for taking these fabulous pictures!
