Fun park BUT use bathrooms prior. Water fountains throughout. Its not low-key-very large so you need eyes glued to your child.

As many others have stated, this a very large park with open fields and playgrounds for the children. Worth passing through it then take the BP pedestrian bridge to Millennium Park.

There are a few little attractions in the park e.g. a mini golf course - which was not in operation while I was there. By and large, the playground is the biggest attraction. They have a few different playgrounds for all ages. A boat adventure,...More

Absolutely worth walking through the park on a beautiful day in Chicago. Even if you're not into plants, the location, atmosphere and city vibe make it special.
