Lake Shore East Park is beautiful -- from its vast, green center lawn and cozy shaded alleys with benches and unpretentious-looking fountains to beautiful trees and flowers and tall, slim skyscrapers around it. The park is public, dog-friendly (there's even a separate fenced dog park in this area), excellently maintained, and overall, has a very modern, charming, friendly feel about it.
Master-planned as the part of the Lakeshore East urban development on about 5 acres of land, the park opened in 2005. The park is actually an inseparable part of this residential area, and it is surrounded by the buildings, that are either luxury condominium skyscrapers, or high-end apartment high-rises, or fascinating townhouses. Some of the skyscrapers are a combination of residencies, businesses and hotels, as for instance, Aqua Tower (also Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel) and St. Regis Chicago Hotel (also a condominium building).
Lake Shore East Park is so perfectly located in this big city, that it is only several minutes walk from it to many other attractions in the area -- Millennium Park, Maggie Daley Park, Lake Michigan, Lake Shore Drive and Lake Shore Trail, Navy Pier, Chicago River and Chicago River Walk, Magnificent Mile.
I've been to Lake Shore East Park many times -- and plan to be back any time soon.
It is a gorgeous, beautiful city park to visit and to relax.
