Maggie Daley Park

Maggie Daley Park is a great place to take in a sunny summer afternoon or a crisp fall morning. In 2012, the Chicago Park District converted the northeastern part of Grant Park into Maggie Daley Park, in honor of of Maggie C. Daley, wife of Richard M. Daley, whose mission it was to improve the quality of life for countless children and to maintain a culturally rich environment throughout the Chicagoland area.

Upon entering the park at either 337 E. Randolph St. or the corner of South Columbus Drive and East Monroe St, a peak at the renowned Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan’s sparkling blue waters greets you like an old friend.

Open from six in the morning until midnight, this park is home to the Skating Ribbon, a great place for rollerblading in the summer and ice skating in the winter.

Maggie Daley Park also boasts an extraordinary three-acre Play Garden, within which there is an eighteen-hole miniature golf course with a general admission of $11.00. This mini golf course features replicas of a few of Chicago’s landmarks: the 110-story Willis Tower (the second tallest building in the United States), the famous Pablo Picasso sculpture, and a Chicago Bulls themed basketball backboard.

Whether you’re looking for an adventurous outing with your family or simply want to take a scenic stroll, Maggie Daley Park is the place to be!
