This park at the entrance of Chinatown offers a beautiful view of the city from the south. You can also easily rent a kayak here for a beautiful down the Chicago River, or hop on the Chicago Water Taxi to trek back and forth from downtown. Great open space with plenty of places to play if you've got kids.
