Such a beautiful park.

Lovely park. We saw 3 deer and countless butterflies. In the middle of the city. Who knew?

Went in search of Chance the Snapper, but found a beautiful, historical Chicago park with amazing wildflowers, multiple recreational opportunities, and green space for everyone to enjoy. While the alligator is at large, some of the rentals aren't available and the east portion of the lagoon is closed to fishing, but the beach area, playground (with splash pad) and trails are open.

Peaceful walk/hike in the middle of northern Chicago...even has a lake for fishing

Long trail with great views of the city. The lake front path is crowded but we just walked on the grass most of the way. Also you can stop along the way and take in the views and even have a drink! -All in all....Great workout!

I walk it several times a month. I Always notice something new. It's one of the many pleasures of living in a WALKING city..

Loved this little spot! One of the few in the city that feels like an oasis! Trails are easy and paved, but the nature is very beautiful. Lots of butterflies, wildlife, a lovely little lake/pond, and tons of wildflowers! Stunning little place. As good as it gets in Chicago, that’s for sure!

Another fantastic trail in Chicago. This is a bit of nature set outside the city, offering a breath of fresh air with some epic views.

Nice nature walk near Rosehill Cemetery. Good for moderate hiking or running but ok for a bit of biking just watch out that some of trails can go in different places and turns can be blocked by the overgrown plants.

Pretty city and lake views! Paved parkway for bikes, rollerblades and strollers. I highly suggest looking into the 5/10k Run for the Zoo- you run this path and also through exhibits!

The prairies are beautiful and so is the board walk. Most of the paths are paved, which is good for wheelchairs and strollers, but not for hiking.

Very easy, but loved the dedicated bike lane which majority of joggers and walkers understand and obey. Lake Michigan on one side, city on other. Total of 15 miles from start of trail (north end) to Navy pier, and back. Free street parking at Lincoln Skate Park (large pay lot available also).
