Designed by William Le Baron Jenney in the mid-1800s and enhanced several years later by Jens Jensen, Humboldt Park was once the nation’s greatest public park, boasting acres of Prairie-style gardens, grazing animals and a meandering river scene. Though the animals are long gone, the park still offers extensive rose beds as well as tennis courts, an inland beach, baseball fields and bike paths.

It's days as a music festival venue seem to be in the past, but visit Humboldt Park during the warm summer months and you're still likely to encounter some kind of celebration. In recent weeks it has become a hot spot for Pokemon Go player, thanks to an abundance of Pokestops and plenty of digital creatures hiding among its numerous trails. But even if you're not hunting for monsters, Humboldt Park is worth a visit for the Puerto Rican food trucks that dot its borders and the beautiful Boat House that might be one of the most picturesque places in the entire city.
Humboldt Park is a beautiful park! It's super expansive and not only has a lovely boat house with a cafe but a stunning garden. This park is really great to spend a summer afternoon at, whether you want to enjoy a bite to eat or take a stroll along the grounds.
This expansive and gorgeous park is the perfect place to while away the afternoon or take a stroll by the lagoon.
Humboldt Park is gorgeous on a summer afternoon. There are some great trails by the lagoon, and you'll always see a few fishermen out, plus tons of wildlife. Sitting at the boathouse restaurant for a quick bite is a nice option too, and you'll find tons of statues throughout the park if you want to learn a little history. My favorite is Leif Erikson.
Humboldt Park is one of my favorite places to spend an afternoon in the city. There's nothing better than a picnic by the lagoon while the sun's out!
