Glasshouse Celebrates 10 Years at Garden
Cleveland Botanical Garden celebrates the 10th anniversary of its Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouse from noon to 5 pm on Sunday, July 14, with free admission for everyone and special activities for kids and grown-ups, alike. Highlights include:
• Free admission to the Garden and Glasshouse for everyone

When the iconic Glasshouse opened its doors on July 15, 2003, the Garden transformed into a true destination experience for Northeast Ohioans to enjoy all year long. More than 1 million people have found beauty, inspiration and magical moments in the Glasshouse.
Designed by famed architect Graham Gund, the Glasshouse spans 18,000 square feet and is made up of 3,400 pieces of glass and 738,000 pounds of steel. It’s one of the only conservatories in the country to feature two distinct biomes under one roof —the rainforest of Costa Rica and the spiny desert of Madagascar.
