We found this place thanks to a Parkour group that meets here on some Saturdays. It's a beautiful area with water and rock features that make it feel refreshing and relaxing even in the heart of downtown. We love to visit and my kids love to climb on the many fixtures. I recommend it if you're downtown for Sundance or... More

Four Chicago tourists died in June of 2004 when a child fell in and they tried to rescue and all died. After that tragic accident, despite the warnings about the fountains the city was sued.

It also happens to be a place that I remember seeing when I was quite young in a movie, Logan's Run featured the main pool as a place in the end of the... More

The open waterfall pool area is fascinating and scary, especially when the area is crowded. It's fun place to take pictures.

Really beautiful water gardens. I love the sound of water and these gardens offer it all, from rushing rapids sounds, to the cool soft trickle of streams in a forest. I highly recommend this as a walk around place after a date. I great place to walk and quietly talk.
