Garfield Park Conservatory is a fantastic place to bring family members of all ages. Something’s always growing, and there’s always something new to discover! To make your experience here even more enjoyable, we offer a number of educational opportunities FREE for kids and families!
At this time, all of our on-site programming is on hold until further notice. Please check the COVID-19 Updates page for more updated information.
Looking to bring the experience of the Conservatory’s Family Programs home? Check out our online activities and follow us on social media as we post videos and activities to families to do at home.
Nature Play Kits
Register today to pick up a Nature Play Kit! These kits include everything your kids need to create a nature-based craft on a different theme every month. Kits are free and you can register for one per child. Information for registering for the October kit is coming soon.
Early access to sign up for a kit is available to Garfield Park neighbors. If you live near the Conservatory and need to access code, call or email Lydia Van Slyke: firstname.lastname@example.org, 773-638-1766 x32.
Pickup information for all kits can be found in Eventbrite. Find the kits at a table outside on the south side of the building, between the entrance and the parking lot. In case of rain, we will be indoors in the Classroom. Talk to the Front Desk if you have any questions on pickup day.
Registering for a kit is not the same as registering for a visit, so please keep that in mind and make a reservation to visit the Conservatory for the same day as the kit distribution! If you have any questions, please call or email Lydia Van Slyke: email@example.com, 773-638-1766 x32.
Planning a visit when we don’t have programming?
No problem! We have a variety of resources to make your self-guided visit just as fun, including scavenger hunts, digital tours, activities and more!
