On my first visit awhile ago, I was so pleasantly surprised to find a place my family and I can go repeatedly throughout the year. I have brought not only family, but out-of-town guests, and everyone was as pleased as I was. First, the grounds, with many lovely gardens, are a joy to walk through during all seasons. The McCormick House Museum was a treasure of interesting things including some little known history. All the tanks outside the Military Museum were covered with kids climbing all over them. The café was charming and served good, reasonably priced food. One of the nicest surprises was that all you had to spend was $5 per car to park! No other admission fees. Even all their outdoor concerts were free. I recommend this place very highly! I have since become a Member, which was also very reasonable.

I have not visited here in quite a while but attended a wedding here recently. This facility was established by Colonel McCormack who owned the Chicago Tribune years ago.
The grounds are beautiful. The restaurant food was great. They have a world class golf course, but since I don't play I don't know if its open to the public.

The highlight of this park is a fantastic WWII military museum

A beautiful and historic park, we go here every year and wander the grounds. Many formal gardens, make sure and do the mansion tour.
