We visited here after touring the zoo right next door. We're by no means plant experts but it was nice to walk around for 30-45 minutes. Not the largest displays but well maintained, nice variety of plants and lots of explanations on different plants, uses,...More

Absolutely! There is an entrance to the zoo right by the Conservatory, near the rhinos! Also, if you wanted to start at the Caldwell Lily Pool, there is kind of a secret turnstile entrance to the zoo near the back of the... More
