5 Top Parks to Visit in Chicago This Summer

Parks to Visit in Chicago

Ah, the open air, green grass, and blue sky! Does it get any better than this?

Now that the sun is shining and school is out, there’s no better way to spend the day then at one of the many stunning parks of the Chicago area. Just be sure to pack plenty of fresh water and wear lots of sunscreen!

Here are some of our favorite parks to visit in Chicago to keep in mind this summer:

  • Lincoln Park (no, not the band)– This enormous park contains both a free conservatory and a free zoo, making it one of the nation’s top parks.
  • Millennium Park – No trip to Chicago would be complete without a stroll through this park, checking out the Bean.
  • Burnham Park – This lakefront park offers beaches, boating, and a skate park.
  • Maggie Daley Park – This newer park features plenty of playgrounds and, if you visit in the winter, an ice rink.
  • Jackson Park – Lastly, if you love birds, you can’t skip Jackson Park, a birder’s paradise which also has lagoons available for fishing.
