Maggie Daley Park
An absolutely beautiful (and super cool I must say), park for you and the family to visit is the Maggie Daley Park! This beautiful Chicago park is located in the Loop and has recently been revamped to be more kid-focused. It now features Chicago’s only outdoor climbing park, as well as mini golf, tennis courts, an animal themed ‘Watering Hole’ (splash pad), enchanted forest, picnic groves, wave lawn, an array of slides, and a path-like ‘skating ribbon’ that is open during the winter months.
I highly encourage you to check out this park online — it is quite spectacular! Both parents and children will have an absolute blast playing here! It also features a 3-acre play garden inspired by Alice and Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory — perfect for capturing the imagination of children and providing opportunities for fun, adventure, and exploration for children of all ages! An absolute must-visit family attraction!
