When to Get There

The Conservatory Garden is open—and lovely—year-round from 8am to dusk. A sunny afternoon is best, ideally with flowers in bloom, though the winter months imbue the park with a unique charm under a layer of snow. The garden hosts many weddings in peak season, so expect crowds during summer weekends. Consider a midday weekday stroll, for the most contemplative experience.
