Indoor and outdoor garden displays of thousands of flowers have been an integral part of the Chicago Park District since the very first parks were conceived. The sites below are a selection of the most interesting and beautiful gardens in Chicago’s parks. From Jens Jensen’s Formal Garden in Humboldt Park to the Garden of Phoenix in Jackson Park, Chicago’s gardens are a spectacular site to see beginning late April and throughout the summer and early fall. Throughout the year, Chicagoans and visitors can experience breath-taking displays of exotic flowers and foliage at the Garfield Park Conservatory and the Lincoln Park Conservatory, two of the world’s largest botanical gardens under glass.
We invite you to come and explore the featured gardens listed below.
