Park & Beautiful Views
Sep 2019
This is a public park, located near the Jane Addams Memorial Park on the way to Navy Piers. The park provides a great opportunity to sit and relax among the greenery, the trees, and the grassy areas. There are some shaded areas as well as some open spaces. While walking, biking or jogging in the park, one can enjoy many beautiful trees, several fountains and gorgeous views.

Quiet and great city views
Jun 2019
You can find this on the way to Navy Pier by way of Jane Adams Park.

It’s smaller and quiet. Easy to keep tabs on younger children and pets.

It is adjacent to the Ohio Street Beach and looking toward the beach, you really get outstanding city skyline views and great views of the lake.

Another place to enjoy the beauty the city has to offer and avoid the crowds. A peaceful escape.

Relaxing and great views
Jun 2019 • Couples
Such a nice relaxing place. Great views in honor of a war hero. Spend an hour or just a few minutes. You’re not allowed to picnic or play any games around here though

Short walk and nice lake view

I walked through the park and it was very calm, and not crowded, and has a nice lake view at the end.

Incredible views

If you’re venturing toward Navy Pier or walking/biking/dunning the lakefront trail...stop by this park. It’s excellent for views back at the city over the water. Easy to access and off not crowded.

Very nice Park
Aug 2018 • Family
One thing that amazes me about Chicago is all of the green space, and this park is an example.This is a little surprise park near one of the biggest areas of Chicago - Navy Pier. It is on a point and gives one of the most spectacular views of the Chicago skyline. This is a lovely park set near Navy Pier.

One of Chicago's best locations and underwhelming utilization
May 2018 • Solo
I love this park and this location. It is one of the best and least appreciated locales in the city hidden in plain sight. That said it is also massively underutilized and I would say neglected by the city which is a travesty. It has fountains that aren't working most if any of the time. There is no "there" there. The journey under the tree canopy is wonderful only to arrive at what looks like a forgotten oversized playground.

Given that it could be an adjacent attraction for visitors who come to Navy Pier/Ohio Street beach the lack of imagination by the city and park district astound me. I realize a refurbishing would take money but you don't have to turn it into Millenium Park Deux in order to give it the dignified appearance it deserves. Just a little creativity and repurposing would work wonders as the location itself would do much of the work.

Some restaurants or programming to hide the water filtration wall lining the park would also be welcome. For me its 5++ in terms of potential and a 1.5 in execution.

Google Milton Olive before you go the park

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.

Great for pictures
Apr 2017 • Couples
One thing that amazes me about Chicago is all of the green space, and this park is an example. This park walks you along the lake with great views of the city on both sides. One side has a great view of the navy pier as well. This is just down the street from the pier, so it's easy to get to and find. There's a bike sharing station right at the entrance as well. Great for photos!

Beautiful water and skyline views
Apr 2017 • Friends
We were on our way to Navy Pier (entering from the underground tunnel off Ohio St.) and noticed this park along the water. We decided to check it out and were so glad we did. The views of the city were awesome! Made for very pretty pictures with beautiful blue Lake Michigan in the forefront. It's definitely worth checking out, if you're going to Navy Pier.
