Buckingham Fountain Parking Pointers
It’s fountain season! Now that summer’s here, Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park is set at full blast. The jets pump out millions of gallons of water all through the day, but savvy tourists will time their visits. At the top of each hour the fountain takes it up a notch with a 20-minute water display show. And after sundown, lights shine on the landmark to create a majestic scene.
The city recommends Millennium Park Garage for the attraction. But the rates are quite high, as the lot costs $23 for any visit under three hours. Drivers can use ParkWhiz.com for Buckingham Fountain parking instead, ensuring the price of their day trip to the park stays low.
