About the Atkins Medicinal Garden
The Dorothy Bradley Atkins Medicinal Plant Garden is a garden oasis in the midst of the busy Illinois Medical District located on the corner of Wood and Polk Streets. The Atkins Medicinal Plant Garden provides a scenic backdrop for those enjoying a quiet break. Those lunching or reveling in the scents and colors of the Atkins Garden may overlook the fact that the plants surrounding them have played a crucial role in the history of medicine. But thanks to the generosity of Dr. Robert A. Atkins, Dorothy Atkins' life as a pharmacist and her interest in medicinal plants are honored and commemorated by the garden.
