The Park at Lakeshore East is the central amenity of the 28-acre Lakeshore East development in Chicago’s Inner Loop. The landscape architect was engaged early in the project by the master plan architects and helped produce the open space guidelines that would later guide the design and development of the park.

Two sweeping promenades of white pavers serve as the primary east-west circulation across the site. Each promenade features a series of five fountain basins. Forty-six species of ornamental plants celebrate the horticultural history of Chicago and provide changing seasonal displays of color. A series of botanical courts extend along the western water garden echoing the form and proportion of the promenades.
