Description:
"Covering 22,000 square feet, the glass and steel Eden Park Greenhouse was renamed in 1937 to honor Irwin Krohn (c. 1869-1948) for his twenty-five years of service on the Park Board." "The Krohn Conservatory contains the central Palm House with tropical foliage, fishponds, and a 20-foot waterfall, and the Desert Garden, Tropical House, Floral Display, and Orchid House wings. Large stained glass pieces on each side of the entryway depict trees and flowers."
