300 North Central Park Ave.
Chicago, IL 60624
Chicago's greatest periods of growth coincided with America's phases of great park building, so it's no surprise that there are an abundance of them in the city. Garfield Park is a 184-acre open space near Lake Michigan.
Within the park is the Garfield Conservatory. One of the largest in the United States, this conservatory grows many plants to be installed in other parks throughout the city. The landscape artistry on display under the glass roof is the beautiful home to rare plants too, like the Double Coconut Palm.
