How Does Your (city in a) Garden Grow? The Future of North Grant Park


North Grant Park is poised for a dramatic transformation. The existing Daley Bicentennial Plaza needs to be dismantled to provide repairs for the garage below. The new park currently being designed to replace it will introduce a diverse range of new park program and landscape experiences that create greater urban connectivity between many important cultural and recreational sites. Community-inspired design principles will guide Chicago Parks District and the project designers in the implementation of a vibrant living landscape, to be completed in 2015, that will draw visitors from near and far for relaxation and recreation.
