Take a step into serenity and spend a moment with nature. Inspired by Subaru’s adventurous, get-out-there spirit, this garden allows you to escape Chicago for a while and travel off the beaten path. Our mulch trail leads you down a simple, flat plane over flowing with plant-life, paying homage to the great state of Illinois. The thoughtfully selected materials are arranged to reflect the ecological footprint of an Illinois prairie, creating vertical and horizontal movement throughout the display.

We believe in making the world a better place. That’s why we build fuel-efficient vehicles in eco-friendly plants. That’s why, over the past 20 years, we’ve donated more than 50 million dollars to causes we all care about, and our employees have logged more than 28,000 volunteer hours.

And that’s why we created the Subaru Love Promise. It’s a pledge to do right by the communities in which we all live and work. We’ve signed it, and throughout the country, our retailers are doing the same. This is our promise to continue making a positive impact in the world and our neighborhoods.
