COVID-19 UPDATE: The Conservatory reopens the outdoor gardens on May 26 and we continue to have additional reservations set aside for neighbors, members and active volunteers! Reservations are required. A 90-minute timed entry reservation includes the indoor gardens and the main outdoor gardens with more than 10 acres to explore! The Play and Grow Garden and the Artist’s Garden remain closed at this time. Indoor garden access will remain as it is now with the following rooms closed for the health and safety of visitors and staff, due to limited space and pathways: The Fern Room, Horticulture Hall, Jensen Room, and the EMG Children’s Garden. Click here to read through our FAQs to help you prepare for a visit. We will be following current City of Chicago guidelines regarding masking and other safety protocols and operating at reduced capacity. 

We have additional reservation times set aside for neighbors, members and active volunteers. This increased capacity is part of a phased approach to reopening, and we continue to prioritize the safety of visitors and staff. Current members, please check your inbox for the special link to make reservations during these additional times. Members who join will be sent an email with this special link. Questions? Contact membership@garfieldpark.org or call 773-638-1766 x 13.
