Lurie Garden

This two-and-a-half-acre landscape designed by Gustafson Guthrie Nichols Ltd., Piet Oudolf and Robert Israel is the perfect Loop lunch spot. Be sure to check out the picturesque footbridge, year-round garden and dramatically lit “shoulder” hedge, which represents Carl Sandburg’s reference to Chicago as the City of Big Shoulders. In monthly garden walks, experts show how you can imitate the ecofriendly horticulture.

Downtown Chicago in the summer can get sweaty and smelly in a bad way. Lurie Garden provides a nice reprieve to your nostrils, since it’s smelly in the best way. The fragrant floral garden is beautifully designed as a visibly hidden treasure in the middle of Millennium Park. If you ever need some aromatherapy, Lurie Garden is your best bet in the city.
