Childrens Greenhouse

Children’s Conservatory

The latest addition to the site is the Children’s Conservatory. This greenhouse belonged to the University of Toronto Botany Department and was built in 1932. The University donated the historic greenhouse, which was moved from its location at College and University Avenue and attached to the existing conservatory at Allan Gardens. It was officially re-opened in 2004. The Children’s Conservatory is closed to the public, but offers horticultural programs for children.

Today, Allan Gardens Conservatory greenhouses comprise over 16,000 square feet. It boasts an extensive permanent collection that is supplemented by colourful seasonal plants and flower shows.
