  • This is a public park, located near the Jane Addams Memorial Park on the way to Navy Piers. The park provides a great opportunity to sit and relax among the greenery, the trees, and the grassy areas. ...  more »
  • It is a spot where you can see the buildings of downtown up close. It is recommended. It is great to see the blue sky while relaxing in the park.

  • Very nice view of Chicago seaside. Very good place to relax and have a break from the city. Extremely calm and peaceful. Recommend everyone to visit.
  • Great views. Amazing place to get married. Relaxing.
  • very nice little Park hidden away at north side of Navy Pier by the water treatment plant and the beach. A quiet place to sit and relax.
  • A great little beach close to navy pier. There were a lot of people playing vollyball and the people at the beach were nicer than usual. There were lifeguards on duty the whole time I was there and lots of people playing in the water. The parking is terrible, but that is to be expected in downtown.
  • Nice views of Chicago, usually crowdy during summer, but definitely worth visiting at least once
