Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at Como Park, formerly Como Park Conservatory, is the largest glass-domed garden in the region. The garden occupies approximately one-half acre under glass and includes the seasonal Como Ordway Memorial Japanese Garden and the Enchanted Garden and Frog Pond to the east.

First opened in 1915, the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory welcomes nearly 400,000 visitors annually.

The conservatory has received several honors. In 1974 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1999 it received the Hortlandmark Award from the American Society for Horticultural Science ‘as a Horticultural Landmark for distinguished representation of natural beauty and promotion of horticultural education and knowledge.’ In 2002, the weekly newspaper, City Pages, recognized the conservatory as the ‘best place for a first date!’
