Centennial Park Conservatory is a conservatory in Etobicoke, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It consists of three greenhouses and 12,000 square feet (1,100 m2) of plants including a cactus house, a tropical house and a show house which features seasonal displays. It is located in Centennial Park, in the former City of Etobicoke. This conservatory is cared for by Toronto Parks who also run Allan Gardens. Admission is free.
