Osaka Garden at Jackson Park

I wanted to share some pictures of the beautiful park we visited on Saturday.  Jackson Park is on the south side of Chicago, in the neighborhood called Hyde Park.  It lies just to the south of the Museum of Science and Industry (one of only two remaining structures from the 1893 World's Fair) and just to the east of the University of Chicago.  Within the park is a beautiful little Japanese garden called Osaka Garden.








 In another section of the park is Chicago's "Golden Lady."


Saturday was one of those perfect autumn days:  warm and breezy, sunny with brilliant blue skies, and spectacular fall color.



I'm so glad we spent it in the park!

  1. Wow, such a beautiful park! The Japanese garden is really awesome and the trees are spectacular, such a pity that they have to lose their bright leaves.

  5. So that's where you took those amazing photos of your pretty new dress! I think that if I lived near there I would go to wander around very often. Ah, and look at the trees! I'm always amazed by how vibrant the colors can be.
