Not much to review but definitely worth a stop, one of the many attractions in Millennium Park! This attraction is at the beginning of the park if you are walking from N.Michigan, start from there and discover the rest, Cloud Gate, Crown Fountain etc...

For a while, this arc of columns stood not harming a soul. Then it was removed and destroyed to open the space to be rebuilt a few years later as a replica at some expense. Tastes change.

Not really sure what it was there for, but we took some fun photos and enjoyed our coffees by the fountain. Surprisingly peaceful
