  • A wonderful oasis in Chicago, and it almost didn't exist. There really is some cool history behind beautiful park, ending with the architect, Caldwell, having to cash in his $5000 life just to buy the plants to make this place a reality. A true hidden gem, most people don't know this place exists or a too busy visiting Lincoln Park to stop by. It's a perfect place to unwind or just take a stroll around.
  • Nice little pool behind the conservatory. See the turtles and ducklings swimming around. I also saw a green heron!
  • Beautiful place in the center of the city! Only thing is need to check the hours before visiting, as it is closed for the winter and sometimes is closed for private events
  • The Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool is a great place to relax and unwind. A peaceful oasis to walk through or stop and enjoy the natural landscaping and natural wildlife. It's a quiet part of the Lincoln Park Zoo, and you can enter from the street or from inside the zoo. A perfect place to take your lunch and enjoy a little bit of wilderness in our great city! #CityExperts @GoogleLocalCHI #PartyonLG
  • Nice hidden away refuge. So peaceful, & quiet, & ...nature-y.
