Chicago Botanic Garden is now charging admission fees for the first time
Although admission is no longer free, the cost of parking has dropped. The Chicago Botanic Garden had always offered free admission for the public, but the cost of parking was historically steep. In a press release dated Wednesday, February 2nd, the Glencoe attraction announced a new pricing structure for the first time in its history.
