The Conservatory at Miller Nature Preserve - Lorain County Metro Parks
Miller Nature Preserve rests on 78 acres of wooded land in the heart of Avon. Much of the property was donated by longtime Avon resident, Buddy Miller in memory of his late wife Alice Fowles. A Visitor Center is nestled between trees and the winding French Creek and includes a café, a gift shop and a demonstration kitchen for cooking classes. The highlight of this preserve is the 5,000 square foot conservatory, the first in Lorain County. Bring your family and friends and camera to capture the beauty inside and outside.
Highlighting the Miller Nature Preserve is the Conservatory, which displays various plant specimens from all over the world in a unique recreation of their habitat. Follow the paths through the conservatory and enjoy the colorfully landscaped gardens including the orchid collection donated by Dr. Ibrahim Eren of Lorain, bromeliads, ferns, bonsai, desert plants, palms and cycads, and other tropical plants. Visit us regularly to see new floral displays that celebrate unique and beautiful plants.
