Washington Park Botanical Garden is a peaceful and delightful place to seek refugee from the holiday bustle. Stroll through the domed conservatory and back room, warm and enclosed from the chill of winter outside. Feast your eyes upon the fine-looking displays of poinsettias and holiday decorations. Return Dec. 29 as Springfield Park District employees tear down the show and you can take home a free poinsettia if you bring a container to hold it in. Park District members get first dibs on the flowers starting at 8 a.m., while non-members may arrive beginning at noon. The giveaway lasts until 3 p.m.
