About Lincoln Park Conservancy

The Caldwell Lily Pool in Chicago's Lincoln Park is a unique outdoor location for an intimate wedding ceremony surrounded by nature. Designed by Alfred Caldwell in 1936, the Lily Pool and surrounding gardens includes a covered pavilion, serene paths, and native plantings.

After decades of erosion and damage, the Lily Pool was completely restored in 2002 to Caldwell's original design by the Lincoln Park Conservancy which now co-manages the site with the Chicago Park District. The Conservancy is proud to offer this natural sanctuary as a venue for your intimate wedding or for wedding and engagement photographs.

    Our wedding day at the Alfred Caldwell Lily pool was absolutely perfect. We couldn't have been happier!

    We found the space on a blog, as we are not from Chicago. But it looked like the perfect spot for us to hold our small, intimate wedding. We booked far out in advance, probably around September for a May wedding. It was $600 for an hour, however it was tax deductible. After a few missed emails and calls, we were able to get it booked.

    About 2 weeks before the wedding I wanted to schedule a time to view the space, since we'd never seen it in person. The guy that typically does the tours wasn't going to be able to do ours until 5 pm the night before, which really wasn't going to work for our schedule. So another employee offered to come show us it in the morning, which we really really appreciated!

    It was at that time they let us know that they would come in about an hour before and ask everyone visiting to leave the area, make sure everything was put together, and then had someone guarding the door just in case anyone else tried to come in, which I thought was awesome.

    The day of we arrived and it was perfect - seriously the most beautiful spot. A hidden gem in Chicago for sure. We couldn't have been happier.

    Thank you all so much for making our day special! We really appreciate it!!
