In 2008, The Tiffany & Co. Foundation awarded Parkways Foundation a $1.25 million grant for the transformation of Grant Park’s south rose garden into a formal garden and event space adjacent to Buckingham Fountain. Visitors to the garden, which was designed by Douglas Hoerr of Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects, will process down a ceremonial promenade bordered by an abundance of colorful blooms, hanging vines, and shaped evergreens.
Visitors to the garden will be surrounded by nearly 12,000 plants, including 270 blooming trees and shrubs, 95 cascading vines, 3,000 spring bulbs, and 7,600 annuals and perennials with white, soft pink, burgundy, purple and silver blossoms.
The garden highlights views of the city’s most beloved treasures: Buckingham Fountain, Lake Michigan, and the stunning view of Museum Campus.
