The cleanup continues at the Garfield Park Conservatory after last week's hailstorm but parts of the 103-year old facility are open.

Hail broke much of the glass overhead in the fern room, show house and desert house along with nine growing houses.

There's been no word when they might reopen and how much repairs could cost.

Other parts of the conservatory such as the Palm House and the Children's Garden didn't suffer as much damage because they were fitted with shatter-resistant glass during renovations.
