Grant Park

Local nameGrant Park

Also called Chicago's front yard by the locals, this park is one of the oldest public parks in the city, and also the largest one, spanning over 319 acres. The park serves as a place of relaxation for the locals. It also frequently hosts public gatherings, events, and festivals, like the annual Taste of Chicago. President Barack Obama held his victory speech here in 2008.

The park, to be found in Chicago's business district, was first opened in 1844 under the name Lake Park. Since then, it has been extended several times and many attractions were added to it.

Most notable among them is the Museum Campus, where the Adler Planetarium, Field Museum of Natural History, and Shedd Aquarium can be found, and the Buckingham Fountain. The fountain, placed in the center of the park, is one of the largest in the world. There are also many monuments dedicated to various notable personalities all throughout the park.
