A walkable scale model located along Chicago’s lakefront. Beginning with the "Sun" station at the Adler, you can follow the "planets" south to Calumet Park or north to Juneway Terrace Park. If you walk at a leisurely pace, it will take you about the same amount of time to reach each planet as it would take a beam of light.
Children can plant, weed, water and more in the garden, maintained by The Organic Gardener, a Glencoe-based organization. Check website for schedule.
