  • Great beach, might be my favorite in Chicago. I would have liked to see some food trucks there though. Also has a fenced in dog park on the beach
  • Great beach & park. Many running events are held here. Parking is usually not a problem. They have free parking and pay lots.
  • Great for runs and hangout on a beautiful day. I prefer the weekdays as to avoid tourist. We usually take Belmont harbor trail and walk North to Montrose Beach, amazing. I recommend it.
  • Beautiful beach. We usually go to the dog beach and it is so fun and convenient. There are always dogs for our pup to play with. People are really friendly. And I heard they are even going to add some showers!
  • Experience will vary, depending on what season/time of day you visit. Overall the beach is very nice, and slightly easier to access than North Ave or Oak Street beaches. That being said it can get VERY crowded during the summer and parking can be a hassle.
