About the Garden
One of the most colorful and vibrant expressway gardens, this site is filled with blazing stars, five daylily variations, daisies, and Russian sage. This stunning garden is located on the northbound lanes of the Kennedy at the Ohio Street exit ramp and catches the eye of hundreds of thousands of motorists each day.
100 gardens cover almost 150 acres of roadside landscapes on all major expressways leading in and out of Chicago
The Expressway Partnership Program
The Expressway Partnership Program turns dreary embankments into ribbons of green parkways weaving through the city. More than 100 gardens comprise the Program, covering almost 150 acres of roadside landscapes on all major expressways leading into and out of the city. Each garden is carefully planned using native shrubs, trees, and perennials that require fewer resources and are well adapted to the harsh roadside growing conditions. We work closely with professional landscape crews to provide plant care, weed control, mowing, and litter pickup from April through October to ensure our gardens always look their best!
