This plan will only work with your cooperation. By respecting protocols together, we can offer everyone an opportunity to enjoy the gardens.
Effective for visits starting March 2, 2022, face coverings and the vaccine requirement are lifted and visitors will no longer be required to provide proof of vaccination or wear a mask in order to use indoor park facilities.
While face coverings are not required, we strongly recommend that individuals continue to wear face coverings if they are unvaccinated or immunocompromised, or if they are interacting with people that are unvaccinated, including children under the age of five. Additionally, visitors may choose to continue to wear a mask, and we fully encourage and support that decision. All Conservatory staff and volunteers will respect and accept all individual preferences with regard to face coverings.

Lincoln Park Conservancy Plan a Visit
We're excited to welcome people to the Conservatory!
They’re back! The Experimental Sound Studio’s Florasonic series has, for years, added a really cool layer to the Conservatory experience. There was a break during the pandemic, but the new piece will debut at the Lincoln Park Conservatory. The piece called “fell to fern” tells a story about a bird and a bed of ferns and moss. Learn more about the piece here: https://tinyurl.com/3pddnnhe. It runs through Sunday, September 25.
Reservations will be open four (4) weeks in advance of the day of the event. If you are unable to get tickets now, check back, we'll release more soon.
