you!

On behalf of Garfield Park staff we would like to thank

Thank

the Friends of Garfield Park, Garfield Park Neighborhood

Association, and SoIndy for all that they do to give back

to our park and neighborhood. We would also like to

thank the all of our dedicated volunteers for their efforts

in helping make the Conservatory and Gardens what they

are today. Without these individuals giving their time and

talent we would not be able to offer all of the wonderful

programs that we do or maintain our historical facilities.

It is with great pride that we have such invested

volunteers and supporters!
