Description [edit]
Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory or "The Domes" is a Milwaukee original. The facility consists of three 85-foot domes. One contains a desert environment, another houses tropical plants and the third changes to match the seasons.

A trip to the Domes will cure even the worst weather blues.

The "Domes" renovation is very beautiful and a long time coming. We here in the "Clarke Square" neighborhood of Milwaukee, where they are located (you might want to list OUR neighborhood in your neighborhoods listings, please?), are very proud and pleased to have them looking good... Thanks to all who helped.
