    Don't like the crowds in Millennium Park? Grant park is a perfect place to quietly roam through gardens, gaze at fountains and artwork, and reconnect with nature. Perfect for a summer night.

    The park is the largest green space in the city and the best place to see all the non-green spaces surrounding it. It hosts many events throughout the year and there are many more ways to get here.

    Lots of geese! And the fountain is pretty. Don't bother waiting for the hourly water show - wasn't worth it!

    The park itself is rather plain (and plane). It's the events that take place AT the park that earn the praise or scorn.

    Grant Park has the Buckingham Palace in the center as its focal point and a park that is used for the famous Lollapalooza. Buckingham Fountain is beyond gorgeous, especially at night...
