  Buckingham Fountain
by CoAir13

Not so much the fountain, but the park itself is worth a visit. Great place to relax after a busy day in the city. The fountain was built in 1927, funded by philanthropist Kate Buckingham, in memory of her brother. Another example of the fine architecture of Chicago. Designated an official landmark in 2000.
