A true gem of landscaping and park architecture. This pool has a lot of historical significance for Chicago Architecture. Would have been nice if it were ever open to the public. It's always closed because someone is proposing.
Such a pretty little gem in the middle of a city. It feels like you are in the middle of nowhere! Definitely worth a little walk through. There are cool places nearby to visit also!
