  • Some family came to visit us from out of town in August, and we took them to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Afterwards, we randomly stumbled upon this gem inside the park. The beautiful lily pond is tucked awa...  more »
  • Maybe it is because we just came from the hyper-maintained conservatory, but we found this park to be overgrown with weeds and the like, a bit dangerous and deserted. It looked good from the gate, but...  more »
  • Just a nice, quiet and beautiful spot in the city. Prairie style landscaping. They also offer tours of the gardens. I may not go out of my way as a tourist to visit, but as a resident, it's a nice way...  more »

  • One of my favorite spots in Chicago. Peaceful and beatiful area to get away from the city atmosphere. Seriously, the moment I step into this place I feel like I'm in a different place outside of Chicago. I reccommned you visit this place during the Summer, it's gorgeous!
  • A masterpiece of arts and crafts landscape design. Everything looks like it should exist in nature. Every so often a wedding party photo sessions but for the most part moderate to light crowds lessening before and after summer. Must see it during peak fall foliage.
  • Really nice Lilly pool with a nice little pavilion. Nice place to come to withdraw from the crowds. In general, it is not too crowded, however during the summer tours are conducted regularly (which I believe are free). Lots of seating by way of Rocky surfaces, not so many benches. Some steps and uneven surfaces.
  • Enjoyed revisiting this welcoming lily pool that is right next to Lincoln Park Zoo & the Lincoln Park Conservatory. There is nearby free street parking on Stockton Dr. & Cannon Dr. if your willing to walk a short distance or a nearby pay for parking lot. All of this is across the street from the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. Bring a picnic and spend the day in the area and enjoy it all.
  • Beautiful and very quiet. It’s a nice little area to relax and recharge.
