Hilbert Conservatory is the shining centerpiece of White River
Gardens. Named in honor of Stephen and Tomisue Hilbert, lead
donors to the project, the towering glass enclosure is the site of four seasonal
shows per year. The Conservatory is 5,000 square feet of lush,
tropical greenery. The 65-foot ceilings flood the Conservatory
with light, and the mezzanine
level provides an overview of the glorious indoor gardens below. With its gleaming shape visible in the night sky, the
Conservatory is an architectural complement to the downtown
skyline. Inside the Conservatory, look for the exotic palm trees and flowering plantscapes
throughout a warm tropical environment. The center font by sculptor Dale Enochs provides the gentle
sounds of flowing water. There are also small ponds with
fish to liven up the atmosphere!
hope this beautiful space inspires you to bring the outdoors
inside in your own home. For tips on how you can liven up your
living spaces with some greenery, check out the
Conservatory Show Handouts.
