Explore the hidden gardens of Chicago's North Shore and Lincoln Park with us. Start by visiting Wilmette's own historical landmark, Bahai Temple. The 9 radiating gardens are planted with foliage of various colors and fragrances to convey the beauty of unity in diversity. Next, we'll discover the Shakespeare Garden at Northwestern University. Jens Jensen designed the garden in response to the Drama League for America's request for activities to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, and it is now listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, Finally, we'll experience the tranquil Lily Pool at Lincoln Park designed by Alfred Caldwell.
