Franklin Park Conservatory
A world that celebrates nature as essential to the human experience
Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens offers botanical collections, art and nature-based exhibitions, plant shows, and educational programs for all ages. Situated in an 88-acre urban park, the Conservatory features the historic 1895 John F. Wolfe Palm House, 83,000 square feet of glasshouses, the 2-acre Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden, educational classrooms, and meeting and event spaces. The Conservatory owns a signature collection of glass artwork by Dale Chihuly. Light Raiment II, a permanent installation by internationally recognized light artist James Turrell, illuminates the John F. Wolfe Palm House every evening from dusk until dawn.
Founded in Columbus and rooted in Franklin Park, the Conservatory remains in Columbus today as part of the city’s vibrant cultural vibe and is proud to contribute to its record growth.
