This tour explores how Humboldt Park served as a "living laboratory" for Prairie style landscape architect Jens Jensen in the early 20th century. The tour highlights the park's fine collection of bronze monuments including World's Fair Bison by Edward Kemeys and Alexander von Humboldt Monument by Felix Gorling.
