Beautiful and large Park right at the end of Chicago and on the boarder of Illinois state as well (with Indiana). Even if it is located nearby the steel industry buildings it still have amazing views on the lake Michigan. Plenty of parking even in the summer.

It was an amazing event that brought people together to experience the unity of community. It was an all night event from 5 PM till 7 AM . Presenters performed dances throughout the night, groups sat in candle lite circles & learned about the cultural of the Native American Indians & their way of life & community. Also a presentation by a resident of the area when the steel mills were productive & after they closed. Participants volunteered to do chores throughout the event. Food was prepared by an Australian chef using local ingredients. Emily Johnson was the producer of this event. Many local organizations were included in this production. This event was open to all ages.

We launch some kayaks here on a Thursday evening in September - great easy, sandy entry and very few people. It is a great location for paddling and a beautiful spot to witness the sunset.

Calumet Park is a huge city park. Not only does it have lots of lake front, but it also has numerous baseball and soccer fields. There are also plenty of shady sections close to the water front for those wanting some relief from the sun. It is a popular spot for families to get together for grilling on the barbeque during a summer weekend afternoon. Lots of roads for bikers throughout the park, though the walkways right next to the beach have lots of pedestrians. Heading west on 95th street (the main entrance into Calumet Park), bikers can connect to a separate bike trail that runs parallel to Indianapolis Blvd. and eventually leads to further points south. An interesting place in the city to explore.

Calumet Park,Chicago, IL which is not to be confused with Calumet Park, IL, has a mile of lakefront and contains three beaches located at the 9600, 9800 and 9900 South blocks along Lake Michigan. The main beach has a Beach House with a concessions stand. Forming part of Chicago's city limit, it is on the border between Illinois and Indiana. I do not go too often to the South Side of Chicago, and because I don't know it too much I always think most of its neighborhoods are dangerous. I was so surprised when I went to Calumet Park and saw great beaches with great views of Chicago downtown and Indiana, and I felt there very safe! I wish it is much closer though because I would go there much more often. For bikers: one of the biking trails start near by, so you can leave your car here (it is safe here) and then with your bike you can go to John "Beans" Beaniac Greenway and than Burnham Greenway and than Erie Lackawanna Trail all teh way trough Hommond to Crown Point, Indiana.
