This haven isn't even a ""one tank trip"" because it's right downtown! Well, it's on the East side of town and admission is very reasonable. There are so many different, beautiful plants to enjoy here set in their 'natural' environments. The gift store has some really unique things and there is a cafe where you can get some food if your stomach is chewing holes through you (it's adequate). But walking around the Conservatory is just heavenly -- it's warm, it's springtime, it's so relaxing and beautiful. It's the perfect get-away right here in town!

Franklin Park Conservatory is truly a treasure in the Near East Side. From the 98 acre beautiful park to the free seasonal displays to the ever changing exhibits throughout the facility, the Conservatory is a joy to visit and live near. Those of us who are fortunate enought to live near this jewel in our central city know the wonders of escaping to this tropical paradise in the middle of one of central Ohio's snowstorms. An afternoon at the Conservatory can take one away to magical lands and sooth the spirit. The tranquil sounds, smells, and sights of the rainforest, desert, or island paradise truly please the soul. Please visit this wonder on the near east side and feel free to bring a picnic and stoll Franklin Park as well.
