Foursquare Tips

  • Traveling with kids? Splash around in the Crown Fountain in Millennium Park before attending a free family lecture, workshop or tour. -- Green Guide Editor
  • Sit down relax and ppl watch.
  • Amazing structure by Chicago architecture firm Krueck & Saxton
  • Great place to cool off on a hot day. How many faces appear on the monoliths?
  • Bring a plastic bag for your phone and wallet. The more time you spend here, the more likely things will get wet.
  • Very attractive place.
  • Wikipedia: "Interactive ... public art and video sculpture featured in Chicago's Millennium Park. ... Designed by Catalan artist Jaume Plensa and executed by Krueck and Sexton Architects." Fun 4 kids!
  • Fantastic summer fun for the kids!
  • Funny watching the tourist
  • So fun. I loved it when I was little.
  • Nice place to cool off on a hot day. Come early for some photos before the crowds

  • Happy place!
  • It's hard to have lunch at the fountain during the summer since it becomes a kiddies pool :-(
  • Very successful park in downtown Chicago. Even adults can cool off without feeling odd about "playing in a fountain" here. Great people-watching, too.
  • Hang around for when the fountain goes off. The faces change afterwards.
  • Kinda creepy, but very interesting and unique
  • Splashing in the water is fun, but the stream coming out of someone's mouth is a bit much
  • I really like this fountain, and I recommend going here in the summer to cool off.
  • Good tourist people watching
