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.

  • Great park! Best kept secret in Lombard! In summer it's a great place to go for a walk with great landscape, flowers and of course lilacia blooms are unforgettable. In winter it's great light display. Best of all it is completely free! You can find free parking on the street.
  • Went for Christmas light show. Santa, train rides, cookie and hot! Awesome. Kids loved it
  • This place is gorgeous during the spring/summer with flowers but they go all or with light decorations during Christmas time. I love this park. Always awaiting a romantic walk.
  • A fantastic place for everyone. Christmas decorations are beautiful in the park. In the summer the lilacs are heavenly. Highly recommend visiting this place and.....often!
  • Just plain and simply...a beautiful place to go for a scroll. What is it about tiny colored lights, that brings out the kid in us?
