Sunday In the Park Tour

If you are looking for something to do this Sunday and are a lover of gardens and architecture, I strongly recommend you come to Lincoln Park.  I will be giving a tour at the Lincoln Park Conservatory and other architects and docents will be talking about their work in the Park.  Even if you've been to Lincoln Park a hundred times, you've ever seen it like this. 

Sunday in the Park: A Lincoln Park Field Trip
Sunday, June 26, 2011
10:00 a.m.

The Pleasant Home Foundation invites you to join a Sunday field trip in Lincoln Park on June 26. During the walk, architect Christopher Payne will discuss the Lincoln Park Conservatory (J. L. Silsbee, 1890 - 1895); the Lincoln Park Conservancy will lead tours of the Lily Pool (Alfred Caldwell, 1936 - 1938); Paul Steinbrecher, AIA, Interactive Design/Eight Architects, will describe the Comfort Station/Carlson Cottage (J. L. Silsbee, 1888) restoration project (2008); and Harry Soenksen, AIA, Studio Gang, will interpret the Nature Boardwalk (2010).
This walking tour is a benefit for the Pleasant Home Foundation that operates the George W. Maher-designed John Farson House in Oak Park as a house museum. The group will gather at the entrance to the Lincoln Park Conservatory at 10 a.m. and end around 1 p.m. at Cafe Brauer. This walking tour will be held rain or shine (no refunds).
Cost is $25 per person. Space is limited and advanced reservations are required.
Call Pleasant Home Foundation at 708-383-2654.
