Chicago Downtown: Millennium Park

Posted by




Conceived in 1997, Millenium Park was officially opened in July 2004.

It occupies about 24.5 acres in the northwest corner of Chicago’s Grant Park [319 acres].

This park is actually a garden on a roof-top. It was built to cover railway lines and automobile garage that provided an unpleasant view of  the city.

Now it’s one of the most ultra modern and interactive parks in the world with state-of-the-art fountains, musical theater, garden and pleanty of space to relax and unwind in the heart of the city.
