Lilacia Park, an 8.5acre garden, is located at 150 South Park Avenue, Lombard, Illinois. It specializes in lilacs and tulips. It is open to the public daily.The garden was established by Colonel William Plum and his wife, Helen, who visited the lilac gardens of famous breeder Victor Lemoine (1823-1911), in Nancy, France. They returned with two cuttings (Mme. Casimir Perier, a double white, and Michel Buchner, a double light purple), which formed the basis of today's collection. After the Colonel's death in 1927 the grounds were left to the city as a public park.The park now features more than 200 varieties of lilacs and 50 varieties of tulips, as well as a greenhouse, historical building, picnic areas, and drinking fountains.

  • This park is really beautiful and an obvious choice for wedding photos (there were 2 there while I was walking around the park). It's also a great place to go for Pokemon. There's a whole bunch of pokestops and hard to find Pokemon if you're in the burbs.
  • My original intent was to play Pok√©mon Go but I found myself enjoying the view and the areas of local significance around. Police near the park don't bother visitors who overstay well past sunset. To clarify that: the town of Lombard is a very calm place filled with a bit more old-timey stone structures and a lot of joggers down Main Street(part of prarie path). The Metra Station separates the park from the Town. I think my favorite part of the area is the deer stature!
  • Beautiful park, especially during "Lilac time" in May, which usually means a nominal entry fee for non-Lombard residents (otherwise it's free all year). Fun decorations during Christmastime. Santa will be there sometimes, and hot chocolate is available in the station house. Right next to another great Lombard destination, the Helen M. Plum Memorial Library!
  • Nice park especially when the Lilacs are in bloom. They have the biggest variety of lilacs than anywhere I've ever been. Very fragrant, some types are more fragrant than others. They also have roses, etc.
  • Beautiful in sumer and beautiful in winter with Christmas lights show
