The Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory offers four changing showcases each year, houses over 25,000 square feet of indoor gardens with a vast plant collection, and maintains four outdoor gardens. The gardens are home to 502 different species of plants, and 72 types of cactus.
The Conservatory also serves as a plant rescue center for endangered species and as a regional clearinghouse for plant information. Programs and special events throughout the year allow the community to enjoy the facility while exploring the complex relationships between the plant world and mankind.
The Conservatory is owned and operated by the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department.
