Family Event, Sunday Walks Offer Colorful Tours of Garden in the City

July 23, 2010

Lurie Garden offers a major splash of color in the city.

In the southeastern end of Chicago’s Millennium Park is an urban oasis called the Lurie Garden.

The 5-acre garden pays homage to the city’s motto, “Urbs in Horto,” which translates to City in a Garden and refers to Chicago’s transformation from its flat and marshy origins to a bold and powerful city.

Every Sunday through September 19, Lurie Garden volunteers take patrons on free 20-minute guided walks and discuss the garden’s design, its native plants and how to apply it to your home garden.

What: Lurie Garden Guided Walks

When: Every Sunday through September 19; 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Where: Lurie Garden in the southeastern end of Millennium Park

Cost: Free
