Step through the Prairie-style Fullerton gate and enter a hidden garden of unmatched beauty. Only bird songs and the sound of a gentle waterfall break the restful silence. Follow the stone walk encircling the lily pool and discover a pavilion, council ring, and diverse native plantings. This is the vision of landscape architect Alfred Caldwell: a hidden garden for the people of Chicago designed to resemble a river meandering through a great Midwestern prairie. When open, drop-in tours are available to the public without reservations during normal docent hours: Fridays: 1 – 4 pm; Saturdays & Sundays: 10 am – 4 pm. The Lily Pool is closed for the season from mid-November to mid-April.
