Conservatories & Greenhouses

Conservatory Facility

Toronto is home to three beautiful and very different public conservatories. Allan Gardens Conservatory and the Cloud Gardens Conservatory are located in downtown Toronto, while Centennial Park Conservatory is located in the west-end of the city in the former City of Etobicoke. Open year-round, conservatories are a great way to experience and learn about nature indoors.

The City of Toronto also operates two production greenhouses. These are closed to the public, and Behind the Scenes offers a glimpse into some of the plant production that happens there.
