#3 of 8 in Parks in DuPage County
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.

    It's a very nice place to hang out or go for a walk but the highlight is the lights they have in the winter. They decorate the whole park with thousands and thousands of lights.  more »

    Summer, fall, winter, and spring... Any season brings exceptional beauty to this cozy park. Lilacs and other flowers bring wonderful smells and the tall, older trees give lots of shade on the hot days.

    It's very calm and has lots of flowers. There are little placards that have tho g about the types of flowers written on them. The flowers smell really nice and the lights during Christmas time are amazing.
