The Lombard Park District hosts the 8.5 acre horticultural display featuring not only 1,200 lilac bushes but 25,000 tulips. Set on the former estate of Colonel William R. Plum, Lilacia Park boasts 200 varieties of lilacs and 50 varieties of tulips along with perennials, annuals, a picnic area and more. (Lombard is suburban Chicago.)

As a bonus this year, the annual convention of the International Lilac Society will be held in Lombard April 28-30, 2011.
