This is a huge park on the Lake and a place where a lot of history has happened. Now it is just loved by the residents who use it a lot in good weather.

People are looking for things to do during the Coronavirus pandemic. Some friends claim they are bored. They have nothing to do. Are they kidding? For Chicagoans, it is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy all of the attractions that the city has to offer. When was the last time you visited Grant Park? There is so much to do, you can't see it all in one or even two days. It's like taking a three-day vacation at home. Bordered by Randolph Street on the north, Roosevelt Road on the south, Michigan Avenue on the west and Lake Michigan on the east, the 319-acre urban park is popularly referred to as "Chicago's front yard." Founded in 1844, it has grown in size by extending into the lake with debris from the Great Chicago Fire in 1871 and landfill. Originally known as Lake Park, it was renamed in 1901 to honor Ulysses S. Grant. Among the features are Millennium Park, Maggie Daley Park, Art Institute of Chicago, Buckingham Fountain, Petrillo Music Shell, Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, Crown Fountain, Cloud Gate (aka The Bean), Lurie Garden, Congress Plaza, Court of the Presidents, Chicago Lakefront Trail, Hutchinson Field, Monroe Harbor, Skate Plaza, even an 18,000-square-foot, off-leash dog park. In addition, there are 16 softball/baseball fields and 12 tennis courts. Don't forget the public art, magnificent sculptures such as the Abraham Lincoln Monument, the large equestrian statue of Civil War general and Illinois-born John A. Logan and the Agora, a series of 106 headless, armless sculptures designed by Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz. Grant Park was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.

A large park with many things to see. Enjoyed walking around and capturing many different photos of the Chicago skyline. Definitely recommend for photography buffs.

We came to get a break from the city and take a look around the green spaces. We enjoyed the view of Lake Michigan and the Buckingham Fountain. It was nice to just sit and enjoy the view. Only downside was that the public restrooms were closed and locked. Not sure if it was because of the season or if they were permanently closed, but it was an inconvenience. We instead went to a nearby restaurant to use their facilities while we had lunch.
