Community Day

The July 5 Community Day has reached capacity. There are still a few spots available for the next Community Day on August 2.

Community Days are part of the Conservatory’s mission to make the gardens accessible to as many people as possible. Now with capacity restrictions, we ask that members and/or visitors who can visit during general admission to please refrain from reserving a Community Day ticket so that those who cannot otherwise visit the Conservatory can do so that day.

On Community Days it’s free to visit the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens for residents of Franklin County and Columbus. A valid ID will be required upon arrival.

The entirety of the Conservatory is open to visitors to enjoy. Stroll through the botanical gardens, marvel at architectural landmarks, immerse in world-class art and exhibitions or play at the Children’s Garden.

In line with the new ticketing process, reservations will need to be made online and before visiting but will still be free.
