About Cantigny Park
Cantigny Park, part of the Chicago-based Robert R. McCormick Foundations, is the 500-acre Wheaton estate of Robert R. McCormick (1880-1955). It is home to McCormick House, the First Division Museum, formal gardens, picnic grounds, walking trails and a Visitors Center with a gift shop, theater, and dining facilities. This summer and through October, the park is hosting “Alebrijes: Creatures of a Dream World,” a must-see outdoor art exhibit inspired by Mexican folklore.
