Alfred Caldwell’s Lily Pool

Alfred Caldwell was the designer of Lily Pool and pictured it as a clear space with trees, stones, and water. That is exactly what you can expect to find when you head there. One of the perks of how hidden Lily Pool is is that you will only hear birds singing and water falling. This is a sanctuary that only opens between mid-April and mid-November. Wedding ceremonies may be hosted there up to a maximum of 30 guests.

Address: Cannon Drive and Fullerton Parkway, Chicago, IL 60614
