Buckingham Fountain, located in Grant Park between Queen’s Landing and Ida B. Wells Drive, is a Chicago Landmark. It is one of the world’s largest fountains, dedicated in 1927 and donated to the city by philanthropist Kate S. Buckingham. Its design, inspired by the Latona Fountain at the Palace of Versailles and built in the rococo wedding cake style, allegorically represents nearby Lake Michigan. The fountain is open from May to mid-October and features regular water shows and evening colored-light shows. The fountain is illuminated with festival lights during the winter.
