Millennium Park is situated at the northern edge of Grant Park, and opened in 2004 to quickly become one of Chicago’s most popular attractions. The architecturally distinctive park hosts hundreds of free concerts and programs in Frank Gehry’s stunning Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Innovative pieces of public art, like Jaume Plensa’s Crown Fountain and Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate, are among Chicago’s most recognizable symbols. The Lurie Garden’s native prairie landscape comes alive in the summer, while an outdoor ice rink attracts thousands for free skating every winter.
