CHICAGO | Millennium Park offers a lively atmosphere encompassing immaculate landscaping and inspiring architecture right in the heart of the city. The 24.5-acre park was brought to life by renowned artists and architects such as Frank Gehry, replacing an eyesore with awe-inspiring design.
Since its opening in 2004, Millennium Park has become a community gathering space with its frequent events and activities catering to all age groups. No matter the time of year, you will find something to do at the park. Refer to the monthly schedule, here or an overview of upcoming events, here. Top attractions at the park include the famous Cloud Gate sculpture (more commonly known as, “the bean”), the Crown Fountain and the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, where concerts and entertainment are typically showcased.
Additional attractions include the Boeing Galleries, where works from different artists rotate through, and the Lurie Gardens. Open year-round, the Lurie Gardens are free to visit. The space lives up to the city’s motto, “Urbs in Horto,” or, City in a Garden.
If you’re interested in learning more about the park as a whole, consider participating in a 45-minute Greeter Tour. For more information and to begin planning your visit to the park, check out all it offers on its website.
