Following recommendations from federal and state officials for the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of concern for our employees and guests, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens will continue its closure through May 31. Refunds for ticket, class, experience and program purchases will be honored. Contact the Conservatory for details.

All donations up to $25,000 are being matched thanks to a generous donor. If you'd like to help the Conservatory through this unprecedented challenge, please visit the Philanthropy page.
