Sunflower City

Things to do Washington Park

Time Out says

No car to get out of the Chicago proper? Don’t let that stop your pursuit of sunflowers—simply hop on the Green Line to visit Sunflower City, an acre of tall, gleaming sunflowers nestled next to the El tracks in Washington Park. Originally conceived as a research experiment to test how the flowers absorbed lead from the soil in a Kenwood lot, the project eventually moved neighborhoods and morphed into an urban agriculture venture to help beautify the surrounding cityscape. Keep up with the org’s social pages to plan the best time for a visit.
