Loved the Bean design. Cool architecture. Couldn’t find the starting or ending of the bean. This is also called the Cloud gate(not sure why )It’s a good place to take pics.

It was great go during the middle of the day it is safer. There was a lot of shootings in Chicago while we were there and mugging. The park is safe and very nice

Visited with my wife in Chicago, in blistering heat, and loved the facilities, the calmness of the place and the big, surreal kidney bean in the centre. A couple of million dollars gets you a kinda pointless chrome looking sculpture, reminiscent of not just an internal organ but also a spaceship from the 1980’s sci-fi movie ‘Flight of the Navigator’
It was a nice destination to tick off without been overly stimulating or inspiring but walking there and walking back led us to some great places…so it gets a big tick for that.

Millennium Park is a large beautiful park filled with art - Cloud Gate (AKA The Bean) and other wonderful installations. It's a must visit in Chicago. They've also got food trucks and plenty of grassy areas for picnics. Would love to spend more time here.

Definitely stop by this park! Seeing Cloud Gate and many other structures in the park is a must!

Be prepared to share the “spot light” with other eager tourists though!

And explore the rest of the park! There’s many historical monuments and structures to explore!

We visited the park during the last week of April 2022. It was a great way to kill some time and relax before the Art Institute (located next door) opened at 11am. It's a great and scenic walk around the park and there was a photography crew doing a tv recording off to the side. We walked around for an hour and took some photos of the landscaping and the famous metal "bean.". They have bathrooms down the walkway below the park which comes in handy for visitors and those viewing concerts. There is even a walkway that we used to walk over to the art museum when it opened. A sign said it doesn't allow pets, but does allow service animals. Definitely convenient to visit right before going to the Art Institute. An hour should be enough to visit the park, but you could stay longer if you plan to eat lunch there and take a lot of photos.

We were very excited to visit Millennium Park. It was okay but nothing special. Perhaps on a warmer day, there would have been a few activities to enhance the experience.

Millennium Park is a wonderful place to relax and wind down. So much architecture to view from the park and lake is nearby too.

This is a must visit in chicago. The park is so beautiful and there’s so much walking and exploring to do. I could spend hours here. The artwork is incredible, tons of playgrounds and fountains.
