Well manicured, small park. Low traffic and very tranquil

Beautiful views. But the trash everywhere is disappointing.

Ping Tom Memorial Park is absolutely a hidden gem. I’ve been to this park numerous times and it is getting each time I visit it. They are continually expanding the park with new ideas which is why I always end back there. The paths are nicely maintained though there are occasional goose waste laying around. There are a lot of spots that are photo worthy and I’ve seen wedding photos taken here. Picnics are also pretty popular along the river as there are willow trees that provide ample shade. There is a water taxi that stops by here which can take you up to Goose Island or Michigan Ave (20 min walk to Navy Pier). Overall, Ping Tom Memorial Park is a marvelous place for a short leisure walk or a family picnic.
