Liz and I were out for an early brunch today, and had the idea to bop around the city a bit. After our meal, we were playing with the idea of going to visit the Garfield Park Conservatory.

Turns out, you need a reservation to go inside! There’s no cost, but apparently they limit the number of people who can enter… and folks have to sign up online for an actual reservation.

On arriving, we found that there would be about an hour wait, until we could get in. So we went back to the car to figure out our next step.

This was the sign in the parking lot, next to our car. To be honest, I’ve never seen this type of sign anywhere else before. It makes me wonder what the backstory was here, and what happened that necessitated such a sign.

Is this a common spot to practice driving? Seemed really odd.

Pro tip for the future: if you want to visit the Garfield Park Conservatory, sign up online for a reservation first. And if you want to practice your parking, maybe look elsewhere.
