Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory (The Domes) reviews
All three domes were very nice. Enjoyed the walkways, and everything was very clean and the plant descriptions were a nice added feature.

Great family experience. Very reasonably priced. Friendly staff. Wheelchairs are available which was nice for my mother. There is alot of walking Flowers and cactus were amazing. I took so many pictures of trees and plants I've never seen before from all over the world. My favorite had to be the sausage tree along with the goldfish plant, lobster claw and living baseball Definitely a great place to take the family for a lovely afternoon. Masks are required at this time.
Such a cool place! A great place to stop by for a couple hours and see all the amazing plants. As a plant enthusiast, it’s a lot of fun to read about all the different plants and their climates. The three domes were very cool. It looks like they have a tropical dome, desert dome, and a dome that has various themes during the year (it was the spring dome when I went).
