The Cantigny Experience at a glance:

Greenhouse Open House

Sunday, May 7 | 10 am - 3 pm

​Free with $5 per car parking

Parking is in the main lot | Trams will be running


Our greenhouse is bursting at the seams this time of year, so we invite you to take a peek when we are at our peak! Bring your family to see what's new, meet our staff, ask some questions, see our colors and become acquainted with a few agencies that may pique your green thumb interest!

Festivities: : Take a self-guided tour of our production-style greenhouse—with lots of color from our annual bedding plants.  You’ll also have the opportunity to see over 50,000 plugs of native seedlings and wetland natives that were started this past winter.  A new nursery area has been developed  to hold perennial plants that were dug from the gardens and will be re-used during Project New Leaf.  There will also be a selection of local organizations with an eco-educational slant as well as Cantigny Horticulture staff on hand to answer your questions. 

Parking:  The Shaffner Road entrance will be closed, except for handicap accessible parking. All other parking will be in the main lot off Winfield Road. Parking fee will apply but there is no fee for the event. Trams will be running to the Greenhouse.
