Just Imagine Our Gardens in 2024

With the realization of our sweeping reimagination of 17 acres of our Conservatory and grounds, opening in fall 2024—we are honored to enhance, steward, and preserve one of the world’s most important collections of gardens and glasshouses.

Steel and Glass

As part of the reimagination of 17 acres of its core guest experience, Longwood Gardens is constructing a new West Conservatory. Learn about the unique design of this 32,000 sq. ft. structure and see the building take shape as 331 tons of steel and nearly 2,000 panes of glass bring this amazing structure to life.
