Designed by world-famous architect Frank Gehry, the 24.5-acre park features the Pritzker Pavilion, an outdoor music venue; the Harris Theater for Music and Dance; an upscale restaurant as well as a casual outdoor dining spot; the Crown Fountain, consisting of two 50-foot block towers at the end of a shallow reflecting pool onto which the faces of ordinary Chicago citizens are reflected; an ice skating rink; the beautiful Lurie gardens; and Cloud Gate, a 110-ton elliptical sculpture that Chicagoans have nicknamed “The Bean.”
Today the city has one of the world's best collections of modern architecture, from Frank Lloyd Wright houses to the 110-story Sears Tower, which dominates the pancake-flat prairies for hundreds of miles around, Chicago's status as the cultural and financial heart of middle America is beyond question.

Located on prestigious Michigan Avenue, Millennium Park’s boundaries include Michigan Avenue to the west, Columbus Drive to the east, Randolph Street to the north, and Monroe Street to the south.

The second largest downtown business district in the United States after Midtown Manhattan, the area contains many notable buildings and a wealth of outdoor sculptures including works by Picasso, Miro, Chagall, Calder, and other artists.
