Thank you!

On behalf of Garfield Park staff we would like to 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!
