Please read the history before you visit the park. Please respect the history of the era and Honor Milton Harvey for his bravery. Please take a river and lake boat tour that will give insight to so many examples of Chicago.

This little slip of natural Lake Michigan beach at the base of Lake Point Tower, offers a spectacular view of the skyline of East Streetervile without floating in the Lake.

I'm baffled as to how this place has a rating below 5 stars. If I could, I would give it 10! When I think of a park, I think of a pretty large wooded area; however, Milton Lee Olive Park is pretty much a strip...More

We just happened upon this little park as we were heading to Navy Pier. Compared to the bustle of many other well-known parks and attractions, this was a quiet peaceful spot. There is a nice walkway and we saw several people walking their dogs. Down...More

We chose this beach because of its' proximity to Navy pier. We went early- maybe 8 am and there was hardly anyone there- just a few people with dogs (this was a Saturday). It was a nice beach with kids because it was smaller and...More

Absolutely beautiful views of Chicago skyline. Very nice walk, quiet, peaceful. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to take in breathtaking views.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
