Partnering with the Chicago Park District, the Friends of Lincoln Park - yes, the same place that has the FREE zoo - restored this Lily Pool, dating to the 1890's, to incredible beauty. On a beautiful Friday morning, we toured the Pond and then visited both the Conservatory and the zoo itself, which was packed with young families and school children.
How wonderful to see the strong sense of community. The docents in the Pond area were very enthusiastic. And why not! See for yourself, though my pictures do not do it justice.
