The conservatory was designed in 1906 by Jens Jensen,
"the dean of Prairie landscape." This 2-acre enclosed garden is
the largest public horticultural collection under glass in the world.
Located next to the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago's largest park, this horticultural collection, including a 50 foot tall fiddle leaf
rubber tree dating from 1891, expands into four greenhouses and
is well worth the visit.
The Morton Arboretum, open 365 days a year, specializes
in the display and study of trees, shrubs, and vines. Its 1700 acres
boast more than 41,000 plants in beautiful gardens and landscapes.
Visit the Chicago Botanic Garden with its magnificent gardens on tranquil lagoons. On 385 acres of spectacular beauty ever-changing with the seasons, it is the third most-visited botanic garden in the United States. Owned by the Forest Preserve District of Cook County, the Garden is a living museum that you can stroll through daily.
Lincolnparkconnect.com is a project of the Children's Memorial Hospital Community-Wide Forum. The goal is to connect Lincoln Park community services-specifically, those people, groups and institutions who need resources and those that have resources-through a social service and community service website. The website provides connections to community organizations, schools, churches, museums, and neighborhood festivals. It also informs the community of events, meetings and special community announcements.
