From Chicagoâs first park, Dearborn Park, to its more famous parks of Grant and Lincoln, this book provides a wealth of information concerning the origins of the names and plans of these Chicago landmarks. A formal plan for the creation of a park system was developed in 1869, and soon Chicago had some of the greatest parks to be found anywhere in the world. When Chicago was founded in 1837, the cityâs fathers adopted the motto urbs in horto, or âthe city set in a garden.â Despite the numerous changes that have taken place over the past 160 years, Chicago is still a city set in a garden. Chicagoâs Parks: A Photographic History captures the growth of that âgardenâ with its nearly 200 historic photographs.
