The parkland was first developed as the host site of the World's Columbian Exposition (Chicago World's Fair) in 1893, memorialized today by the Statue of The Republic. The Museum of Science and Industry resides in the remaining "palace" in the park from the Fair era, and a Japanese garden traces its history to the Fair. The park includes woodland trails, playing fields, a beach, a golf course, and a boat harbor. Green features of the park include Wooded Island - which includes the Japanese styled Garden of the Phoenix, previously referred to as Osaka Garden - Bobolink Meadows, and a vegetable /flower garden. It is the potential future site of the Barack Obama Presidential Center and library.
