North Gardens

Designer: Austin Eischeid Garden Design

Installation: Christy Webber Landscapes

Maintenance: Vivant Gardening Services

The North Gardens at Millennium Park are comprised of four distinct, but related, spaces totaling over 17,000 square feet. Included in the North Gardens are the east and west slopes of the Harris Rooftop Terrace, the Rooftop Terrace itself, and slopes to the east and west of the Harris Theater entrance on Randolph Street. Leveraging the shade provided by mature honeylocust trees, large sections of the North Gardens are designed in a naturalistic stylized woodland scene. Other, more full sun zones of the Gardens evoke savannahs with their design elements. Nearly 63% of the plants used in the North Gardens are native to the Midwestern United States
