The Punkin' Path Display
October 8-27
Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun St.


Visit our outdoor Punkin’ Path, where you can enjoy the fall surroundings and take festive pictures with your little ones. The path will be decorated with pumpkins, gourds, bales of straw- and gnomes! – to provide fun photo memories. Gnomes are caretakers of land and animals; they are industrious, enjoy all kinds of games, and surprisingly, they love to travel! Watch for them along the Punkin’ Path and learn about them. This exhibit is included in Conservatory admission and open during public hours.

Pumpkin Zone
Saturday, October 19, 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun St. 


Enjoy an autumn celebration at the Botanical Conservatory! Children and their adults will explore the gardens for fall crafts, activities, and games. Test your observation skills with the Gnome Search, discover whether pumpkins float or sink, and nibble on pumpkin seeds. Friends from the Allen County Farm Bureau will help us learn about pumpkins and how they grow. Join us for a special presentation with PBS 39 and “Bat Man,” a local bat expert! The Conservatory is proud to offer Pumpkin Zone as part of the Downtown Improvement District’s Fright Night festivities. Regular Conservatory admission applies.
