Humboldt Park

Humboldt Park

Time Out says

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 is still a gem among Chicago's public green spaces, filled with lagoons, tennis courts, an inland beach, a fieldhouse, baseball fields and bike paths. Wandering through the area long enough and you'll probably come across the Humboldt Park Boathouse, an iconic example of Prairie style architecture.
