Have Your Ceremony in the historic beauty of the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool
Begin your life together surrounded by the natural beauty and privacy of a unique National Historic Landmark in Chicago’s Lincoln Park. Designed by Alfred Caldwell in 1936, the Lily Pool includes an architecturally significant pavilion, a cascading waterfall, and native plantings.
After decades of erosion and damage, the Lily Pool was restored from 1998-2002 to Caldwell’s original design by the Chicago Park District and the Lincoln Park Conservancy. The Conservancy is proud to offer this natural sanctuary as a venue for your intimate wedding ceremony. Maximum wedding capacity is 30 guests.
All wedding, engagement, family, or other professional photography must obtain a permit in advance from the Lincoln Park Conservancy.
Call for one-hour rental pricing and permit details.
The Lily Pool is open seasonally from mid-April through mid-November. It is also closed the Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the Air and Water Show.
