Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory reviews
You don’t have to board a plane to visit the tropics. And if you have a AAA membership, it’s only $4 to get in. Suddenly it’s warm and you are surrounded by tropical sights and sounds: flowers... more »
If one wants a sense of being in the jungle or desert, without leaving Ft Wayne, come to this botanical garden. There is a 10,000 square foot changing flower gardens and a 10,000 square foot jungle..... more »
This has always been a favorite place to visit and other than the obvious heat, which is totally expected of a conservatory, it was a beautiful visit. We did family pictures with our daughter and her new husband and loved it in there. Plenty of variety and unique spots for taking pictures. There were so many butterflies outside they were landing on us. The staff was great and the gardens beautiful. They really do need more handicap parking at the building though, there are 3 spots in a little drop off area and that's it.
A nice set of gardens, and a relaxing way to spend a spare hour or two when you have the time. The gardens are laid out with three indoor sections, each with a different theme, and an outdoor section. During our visit there were many plants in bloom. There are signs which tell visitors what the name is of the species of plant you are looking at. Being in the middle of the city means there is little free parking nearby.
