Autumn in Chicago’s Millennium Park

Millennium Park (constructed 1998–2004) is a 24-acre park, garden, subterrene parking garage, and cultural center located within Grant Park and bounded by Michigan Avenue on the west, Randolph Street on the north, Columbus Drive on the east, and Monroe Street on the south.

Mayor Richard M. Daley thought of Millennium Park as a collaborative public- and private-sector plan to commemorate the journey of the second millennium, cover the unsightly previous rail yard and parking lot of the Illinois Central Railroad, and develop the northwest corner of Grant Park in the spirit of Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett’s Plan of Chicago (1909).
