A lovely conservatory with a range of plants. Easy entrance with self service ticketing, reasonable price. A great park to spend time and the number 10 stops right by the entrance.

The plants displayed in the conservatory are beautiful with orchids, succulents and flowers and foliage of all types. The multiple buildings are well maintained with plenty of space to spend your time.

Like a burst of summer. Well maintained. I like it because it has just enough plants to not be overwhelming, but not too few to fell like a waste of time. The many varieties of orchids are beautiful. Little kids probably would be bored.

There's a great cafe cafe near the park called "The Volunteer Park Cafe". Cheap, friendly and delish.
