Gresham, officially Auburn Gresham, is one of Chicago’s seventy-seven official community areas and is a mostly residential district in the city’s far south.
Marquette Park and Fishing Spot is an extremely popular green space located close to the Gresham area. A 315-acre park featuring a fishing lagoon and water-sports facilities, Marquette Park is home to some of this area of Chicago’s most floral patches and each spring the park is filled with local flora and fauna.
Close to Gresham is The Museum of Science and Industry, one of Chicago’s most esteemed attractions. Home to a range of informative exhibits geared toward a family experience, the crown jewel of the museum is perhaps the Apollo 8 spacecraft, which attracts space enthusiasts from across the city and Illinois state.
Throughout district, from West 87th Street to West 76th Street, Floom’s Gresham flower delivery covers every part of the community.
