Added by Douglas Hall

Want a quick outdoors escape but you're stuck in the city? Exploring Chicago's Luire Garden offers so many great vibes and plenty to see within! Enjoy the beautiful skyline, flowers, and insects!

Visiting Chicago I was on a mission to find a great outdoors spot to be in. This definitely fulfilled my goal of finding a beautiful garden to hangout in! There are plenty of different paths and areas to explore just within the city!

Location

Located in Millennium Park it will be easy to find, the park is in the South end of the park. The cross streets for the park are Monroe Drive and Columbus Drive. Parking in Chicago is crazy, if you are from the city it will be an easy adventure for you to have access to. If not you will have to use one of the few underground parking garages located in the area of the park. Just keep your eyes peeled for the signs to locate a parking garage as they are scattered around the area near Millennium Park.

The Adventure Itself

With there being plenty of paths to choose to walk on you will be able to see tons of different species of flowers and plants along with butterflies, bees and other insects. Bring a snack to eat and sit along side the small water feature that runs through the park as well. It is a gorgeous park to be able to get some fresh air within the city. I suggest to bring your phone or camera to capture some photos as there is plenty to take great pictures of. There are also usually people that volunteer within the park to help teach about the different areas within the park as there is an enormous amount of flowers and plants to learn about. Stay on the paths so that the plants can continue to thrive in this beautiful little park!

Be sure to check this one out if you are in the city, I was stoked to find this and be able to share it with all of you! The park is free to enter and walk through so be sure to pick up all of your trash and belongings you take so that it can stay as a beautiful little getaway in the city! I have a link located here incase you wish to read and learn more about the park! Happy adventures!
