Gaiser Conservatory

The Gaiser Conservatory was named for longtime Park Board member Dr. David Gaiser. The Conservatory is open to the public, free of charge, throughout the year. The greenhouses contain tropical, sub-tropical, and temperate plant specimens from around the world. The displays are changed seasonally.

Each December, Parks Greenhouse staff decorate the Gaiser Conservatory with a beautiful display of over 30,000 holiday lights that are free and open to the public to view. Hours vary and will be posted on our website.
