Garden of the Phoenix

Location: 5800 S Lake Shore Dr

Notes: Featured photos were shot during the Summer. This is a very beautiful location, tucked away behind the Museum of Science and Industry. It’s a Japanese garden on Jackson Park's Wooded Island featuring a waterfall & foot bridges. There’s rich history attached to this park and can be read about here: Garden of the Phoenix History.

Cons: With my last visit, it was hard to find access to a parking lot, as well we had a hard time finding access to the actual park nearby - construction was blocking the original entrance. Will update this note after scouting again. Technically, a photo permit is required to shoot here, but as of yet, I haven’t been approached to present one.
