Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory:
is always in season! Surround yourself with nature at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory – an oasis in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne. Visit the Showcase Garden with its lush seasonal displays, wander through the Tropical Garden where orchids and palms thrive in the shadows of a cascading waterfall, or retreat to the quiet beauty of the Desert Garden.
Every spring thousands of visitors experience the live butterfly exhibit, featuring hundreds of tropical butterflies mingling with their human guests inside an enclosed tent.
The Conservatory provides aesthetic gardens, quality education, and fun events that create a high quality of life for the community. The Conservatory was the brainchild of Helene Foellinger in the 1980s during the City’s first major renovation and offers year-round events and rentals.
