The Chicago Botanic Garden, with its world-renowned plant collections and displays, is one of the country's most visited public gardens and a preeminent center for learning and scientific research. The 385-acre Garden features 27 display gardens and four natural areas, uniquely situated on nine islands surrounded by lakes.
