What a fine-looking place is our Lincoln Park! I took this photo last summer when the flowers and plants were at their peak of perfection! The large, unusually shaped building you see in the background is the Lincoln Park Conservatory. Do you recall a post quite some time ago with lovely poinsettias and a model train meandering in their midst? Those photos were taken at the Lincoln Park Conservatory. There are always events, displays, and permanent exhibits to see at the conservatory; and it’s free!
This is such a wonderful park to take a stroll, picnic, read, and relax. The park is adjacent to the Lincoln Park Zoo. I do love the atmosphere at the park. A vast city like Chicago is fortunate to have such spaces; it helps when the hustle and bustle of the city requires you to recharge your batteries now and again. I find this works wonders in a surrounding of green, lush, and thriving foliage.
Here is another angle of the park. You can see the tall buildings in the background; once again, the juxtaposition I see in Chicago makes it all that more interesting, don’t you think?
