Lurie Garden

Recap: 7/2018

Lurie Garden in Millennium Park was designed to combine naturalistic plantings and ecologically sensitive maintenance practices to create an urban oasis for city dwellers and wildlife alike.

Originally implemented by the woman-led architectural landscaping firm, GGN—and currently led and managed by an all-woman team—Lurie Garden is a leader in landscape architecture, garden design, responsible maintenance practices and dynamic public programming in an urban environment.

Jo ana Kubiak —a LWD member and the Membership and Communications Manager of the Lurie Garden, along with Director & Head Horticulturalist, Laura Ekasetya—led us on a tour of this incredible urban retreat within Millenium Park.
