Starting behind the Museum of Science and Industry, Jackson Park contains acres and acres of re-created forest and lush greens. Be sure to stroll through the wooded island and stop at the Japanese pavilion, a re-creation of the one that stood at that very spot during the 1893 Columbian exposition. Along with the museum, the Wooded Island is one of the last remaining vestiges of that fabled fair. Well worth a visit after a trip to the museum, but be careful, the neighborhoods nearby can be shady after dark.
