Family Friendly Fun: Maggie Daley Park


If you are looking for family-friendly activities during your visit to Chicago, Maggie Daley Park is a great option. Located adjacent to Grant Park and Millennium Park and situated along Lakeshore Drive, the park offers stunning views of the city and countless activities. Oh, and did we mention it’s a short, 5 minute walk from us?

A fun destination in any season, we particularly enjoy all that Maggie Daley Park has to offer in the summer. The expansive design of the park is fun and whimsical. Take a stroll through, or make it a point to stop at one of the following locations:

  • Play Garden: The 3-acre Play Garden offers a unique and imaginative space for children less than 12 years of age. With designated areas such as a Watering Hole, an enchanted forest and a suspension bridge, the possibilities for exploration are endless.
  • Climbing Wall: Chicago’s first and only Climbing Park is situated in the center of Maggie Daley Park. The height of the structures is over 40 feet tall and offers climbing for beginners and experts alike.
  • Picnic Groves: enjoy a meal outdoors at one of the four picnic groves available at Maggie Daley Park!

Plus, don’t miss an opportunity to view your favorite movie under the stars! Movies in the Parks are featured throughout the summer at Maggie Daley Park and several other locations. See schedule and locations here.
