Opened in July 2004, Chicago’s new Millennium Park is an award-winning center for art, music, architecture and landscape design that has become one of the City’s most popular destinations. The result of a unique partnership between the City of Chicago and the philanthropic community, the 24.5-acre park features two works by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry – the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, an outdoor music venue that seats 11,000 people, and the BP Bridge, a winding, serpentine footbridge that crosses Columbus Drive.
The BP Bridge is Gehry’s first.

Location

Downtown Chicago (the Loop) at Lake Michigan.
