We found this park walking between the L station and the Museum Campus. A nice place to sit and watch the skateboarders or get some nice photos of the skyline and the strange sculptures.

The "Agora" sculptures are so fascinating, tall headless structures pointing in different directions so that no two are facing the same way. There is a skate park nearby you can watch or participate in using the ramps and such. Also this modern buddha looking art...More

We enjoyed seeing the "Agora" sculptures, the huge legs that seem to be strolling in random directions.

This time we walked to the south end of the park to see the sculpture Agora designed by Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz. A stunning installation. Agora is an installation of 106 headless and armless iron sculptures. Very moving.

I live only 2 blocks away and run here and walk here all the time. It's a great place to unwind, run, walk, chill, etc. Always good people watching. Best park in the city in my opinion.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of

No problem walking dogs on a leash. It was common to see them and their owners enjoying the walkways. You will notice certain areas of the park seem to attract more visitors, in fact, lots of them. Avoid those areas and use... More
