More About Grant Park
Grant Park was first imagined after 144 acres were given to the city from engineer Lemuel P. Grant; the Olmsted Brothers, sons of Frederick Law Olmsted, were commissioned to create an architectural landscape plan. Over 2 million people visit the park every year, especially in the autumn when the leaves change color and the skyline can be easier seen. Supporters established the Grant Park Conservancy in 1996, and the park has thrived since.
