Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens
Situated along the banks of our beautiful Rock River, Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens brings the tropics to the Midwest.
The facility is the third largest conservatory in Illinois, offering an 11,000-square-foot plant exhibition area complete with water features, seating areas, and sculptures, all in a tropical plant setting.
The beauty continues outdoors with the Eclipse Lagoon, complete with two fountains and a waterfall, pedestrian bridge, patio areas, and walkway connecting the Conservatory to the Sinnissippi Rose Garden.
Get an intimate look into the fascinating world of the lorikeet. Come "face-to-beak" with these always curious nectar-feeding birds.
Celebrate the holidays at Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens! Come see sparkling holiday lights and beautiful floral displays inside the warm tropical conservatory.
