This park has so much potential as the site of the White City at the World Exposition. It could probably be one of the most beautiful places in Chicago - if the city would let us enjoy it. The Wooded Island with the Osaka Garden is completely closed and has been for nearly a year and a half. Even the... More

While visiting the Hyde Park area my group had planned to see the Osaka Garden section of Hyde Park. I had research it a few months prior and was even on the official park website. Nowhere did I recall reading that the Osaka Garden section would be closed for renovations. That was disappointing. We didn't bother exploring the rest of... More

A massive park that once was the site of the famous White City of the World Exposition. One can literally get lost here. It is wild or groomed depending on your desire. A true gem in the Hyde Park area. You must also check out the nearby Promontory Point that has one of the most amazing views of the Chicago... More

Visitors quickly learn that the Museum of Science and Industry, located at South Lake Shore Drive at 55th Street on the northern edge of Jackson Park, is housed in what was the Palace of Fine Arts during the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, one of the grandest of all World's Fairs. What they usually miss, as reported by former Tribune travel... More

We were short on time and dusk was approaching so was only able to see the Statue which was the main reason for the visit anyway. I do hate that we did not have time to take in the whole park. Not the best of neighborhoods so definitely plan on visiting in the daylight hours. The statue herself is beautiful... More

This garden is great, but the fact that it is quite dodgy at night and even evening make it a tad less desirable. The japanese garden is an oasis in the city, really peaceful and quiet. Recommend coming here if you went to the science and industry museum and you have an hour.
