A beautiful, free park for the public to enjoy. Different ornamental gardens, paths and greenscape to explore. Open air concerts for everyone to enjoy, free-of-charge or if you prefer, purchase a ticket for a close-up seat.

Beautiful park with the famous “bean”, a fun fountain for the kids to run through that has actual faces on it that periodically “spit” a stream of water. Lots of activities, wonderful photo opportunities

Something for everyone.Families can spend all day here. Of course, the BEAN is the big attraction, and beautiful while being so entertaining. Really fun to watch everyone else playing, making faces, and just enjoying their reflections.

Easy thing to check off your Must Do list, the popular Chicago “bean” is here and be strange faces of Crown Fountain are definitely things to see. There a plethora of hot dog carts around the park for easy access to the obligatory Chicago Dog!

There is a place for activities like skating and rock climbing. You can rent lockers there if you are participating in any of these sports. But not sure if they will rent otherwise. Can still take a chance
