Getaway at the Greenhouse is an indoor oasis that pops up at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center every February for fun and free activities, such as live music, family-friendly games, and food and drink, that are meant to inspire thoughts of warm summers in the park.

Inspired by the popularity of Philly park pop-ups such as The Oval+ and Parks on Tap, the inaugural 2019 year of Getaway at the Greenhouse attracted more than 10,000 people to the Horticulture Center to escape the winter blues. During the weekdays, visitors picnicked and played games throughout the greenhouse and enjoyed nature-themed read-aloud stories with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and the Free Library of Philadelphia. Once the sun set, visitors were invited to sip cocktails, check out live music and movies on the big screen, and more.

Getaway at the Greenhouse returns for its second year from February 1–16, 2020 at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center, which is located in West Fairmount Park and sits on the site of the former Horticultural Hall, an 1876 Centennial Exposition building. Getaway at the Greenhouse is a partnership among Fairmount Park Conservancy, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and Constellation Culinary Group.
