Mitchell Park Domes

Fathoms Below - Underwater Floral Show

The Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory's Show Dome is transformed 5 times each year. Each Show Dome display has a specific theme, generally categorized as historical, cultural or fantasy, and is chosen at least a year in advance. Plants are selected specifically for a particular floral exhibit and grown in the Greenhouses located at the Mitchell Park Domes. Once in place, a show may last from six to fourteen weeks. Please note that Show Dome is closed for approximately two weeks between shows to transition to the new theme.

    Bring your favorite stuffed animal along to the Domes this fall and relive your childhood in our Hundred Acre Wood-themed garden.  Travel along with your bestest friends through a variety of colorful flowers and plants with a special commonality.  You can wander past Durango Honey Chrysanthemums and bounce by Tiger Ferns.  Colorful Craspedia and Sunflowers will lead you to a little fall vegetable garden complete with tomatoes, Swiss chard, basil and ornamental peppers.  It will be a fun time this fall for grown-ups, kids, silly old bears, piglets, tigers, and donkeys alike!
