Alfred Caldwell, landscape architect

— 1936-38 —

Chicago Landmark

One of the most important historic landscapes in Chicago, this "hidden garden" in Lincoln Park was designed by note landscape architect Alfred Caldwell in the Prairie style. Inspired by his mentor Jens Jensen and the work of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, Caldwell poetically interpreted the Midwestern landscape through the use of native plants, stratified stonework, and a natural-looking "prairie river," with a waterfall that symbolizes it source.
