Chicago

Grant Park

Often referred as ‘Chicago’s Front Yard’, Grant Park has been the site of several large civic events including the recent President Barak Obama’s Election Day victory speech in 2008. With 319-acres of lush greenery spread around the Buckingham Fountain, this park was landscaped in the early 20th century in the formal beaux arts style with tall American Elms planted in concentric designs around the park.
