About The Horticulture Center in West Fairmount Park
The Horticulture Center in West Fairmount Park, a modern exhibition hall and greenhouse, was built for the Bicentennial celebration in 1976. It sits on the site of the former Horticultural Hall, an 1876 Centennial Exposition building. A trip to the Horticulture Center will be time well spent. Within its walls are a visitor center and greenhouse where one can see many tropical plants and a fine collection of statues interspersed in the greenery.
