Garfield Park is a 184-acre site located in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on Chicago's West Side.

It is home to the Garfield Park Conservatory, one of the largest and most impressive conservatories in the United States. Often referred to as "landscape art under glass," the Garfield Park Conservatory occupies approximately 4.5 acres inside and out and contains a number of permanent plant exhibits incorporating specimens from around the world (including some ferns that are over 300 years old). Additionally, thousands of plants are grown there each year for displays in Chicago parks and public spaces.

If anyone lives near here, I would LOVE a postcard of the conservatory!
