We took the 2 mile walk from the waterfront to the Wrigley Memorial, which was a pleasant 45 minute walk, and arrived at the memorial. The memorial is a cactus garden and indigenous plant garden, built in 1934 and it looks it. The memorial, at the far end of the garden, should be billed as an ancient ruin rather than a memorial to anyone. However, William Wrigley Jr. was the owner of the Chicago Cubs, which is also a ruin that has gone 105 years without winning the World Series, so the place works as a monument to where old Cubs go to die!
They want $7.00 a person to view this wreck. I'd walk up to the gate, take a quick look, and turn around and take the two mile walk back to the harbor and have a coffee and a cookie with the $7 you save.
