Can anyone recommend places in the twin cities that have indoor gardens with trees and plants and walkways? I'm getting bored both with winter and with mall walking, and am looking for pleasant places to stroll around, get some exercise, and sit down to read a book.

So far I know about Edinborough in Edina, and of course the Como conservatory.

Thanks!

Minnesota Zoo has the tropics and fish areas. There's not a tremendous amount of seating but some.

For a mini-garden experience there's also the Sculpture Garden's conservatory.

Also, check to see when the Home and Garden Show is coming-if it is coming. It is usually at the metrodome so I don't know what will happen there--possibly at the Mpls Convention Center.

I read an article today about Woodbury's Central Park and thought of this thread; I've never been there myself (or heard of it until today), but apparently they have a large indoor garden space.

A great one is the Como Park conservatory. Lots of trees and plants and a large coy pond. It is pretty nice.

The Bachmans greenhouse at 6010 Lyndale has a small cafe with seating inside a greenhouse. The last time I was there, the food was decent but not amazing. Still, it felt wonderful. Eating lunch there in the middle of the winter is like a little slice of Spring.
