These past few weeks I’ve had the pleasure of visiting one of Lombard’s most scenic springtime attractions, Lilacia Park. Most recently I met up there with my mom to celebrate my birthday and was sad to see that most of the blooms were on their way out. Luckily, just a few weeks prior, I had the chance to make it to the secluded lilac haven. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the uplifting (and for me, somewhat nostalgic) scent of lilacs that permeates the breeze there in May, I was also able to take some photos of the blooms in full force. Here are a few shots for those of you who weren’t able to make it in time this year (I’m looking at you, mum!), or who have never been to this little gem of a park tucked away in downtown Lombard, IL.
