What people are saying:

Jackson Park was transformed into the fair grounds for the 1893 World's Fair by Frederick Law Olmsted (of Central Park fame). While the park has changed over the years, many original designs remain, including a manmade lagoon and some of the original light posts. Don't miss the Statue of the Republic, a smaller-scale replica of the original statue that serves as a symbol of the fair.

Additional Information

Introduction

 Jackson Park is located behind the Museum of Science and Industry and has a large area of re-created forest. It is a good idea to visit the Japanese pavilion that is a replica of one that existed in the same spot during the 1893 Colombian exposition. This is a great stop for anyone who is looking for somewhere to stretch their legs after visiting the museum. The Wooded Island is also a spot in the park that is a great place for kids. This is a place that is great during the day, but one should try to avoid it after sunset since it is possible to find less than desirable people here.
