This vast expanse of land is the largest park in the city of Chicago. It is located in the northern area which is the more upper class neighborhood. With nearly 500 acres, its size is huge and it takes more than one day to see it all. In addition to the gardens, there are numerous sports facilities, a zoo, a golf course, beaches and countless monuments. There are large areas of woodland and two large lakes, with a presence of abundant wildlife. In some places, it is reminiscent of Central Park, but in others it is decidedly rustic.
