About Navy Pier - Crystal Gardens

Crystal Gardens at Navy PierCentrally located on the east end of the Family Pavilion, the beautiful Crystal Gardens is a one-acre indoor palm court. The six-story glass atrium features 70+ full-size palm trees and a variety of seasonal flowers and plants. Dancing 'leap-frog' fountains and ample public seating areas provide a quiet, tropical setting amidst the activities of the Pier. Visitors to the Crystal Gardens can take in spectacular views of Navy Pier's Ferris wheel, musical carousel, Dock Street and the stunning Chicago skyline. The Crystal Garden is also a magnificent place to hold your private party or corporate event.
