My Chicago: Lurie Garden

At the southern end of Millennium Park, hidden behind giant hedges, lies Lurie Garden. This urban oasis offers fields of wildflowers, alcoves for sitting or napping, and even a small pool for dipping tired feet and making a wish. If you're lucky, you might stumble upon this place by accident. You might stroll through the people-saturated park lost in thought until you spy a gap in the hedges. As you enter, the bustle of the city becomes quiet. And as you walk through the meadow of purple and gold, you might feel as if this secret garden was erected just for you.
