Bird Haven Greenhouse & Conservatory sits on three acres of land within a 660-acre site, comprised of Pilcher Park and Higginbotham Woods. 

The Greenhouse & Conservatory was constructed at its current site in the early 1900's. This Italian Renaissance-style facility, designed by Lord and Burnham Company, features spectacular floral shows with seasonal motifs during the fall, winter, and spring. Year-round attractions are offered with a tropical house, cacti room, and show house.
