The conservatory opened at the intersection of Garfield Street and East Avenue in 1929. It was built adjacent to the park district administration building, which was formerly occupied by a ball-bearing factory, and was intended as a place to grow plants for the parks. When it opened, a newspaper described the new conservatory as a "place of fragrance and beauty."
