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.

    Unless you really love history...

    If you’re a casual traveler who is staying in the Loop and doesn’t have major preferences about what you see in the city, I would actually say Jackson Park probably isn’t worth the trip. I made the ha...

    Very nice and serene

    Lots of beautiful lawn. Some water and a little island nearby too. Great place to walk and admire nature. There are places to play football, golf and there are two kids play areas too.

    A Great Statue from the World’s Fair

    The Republic Statue sits in a traffic roundabout, so it’s a little hard to get to by foot. There was little traffic when we visited, so no big deal. Up close, she looks great. A fine replica of the ...

    Statue of the Republic

    Not easy to get to by CTA - about 35 minutes walk from Cottage Grove on the green line. I think the statue is well worth the effort. Also an interesting walk on the south side of Chicago through "Le...

    Lots of history in Jackson Park

    Jackson Park was first developed in 1893 as the host site for the World's Columbian Exposition, or the Chicago World's Fair. In a six-month period, it drew millions of people to the Chicago lakefront....

Additional Information


 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.
