I live nearby in Printers Row and frequently take my dog Emmet for walks throughout Grant Park. He loves the grass, smells, and open space. I love that the park is well maintained, has wide walking paths, and provides amazing views of the skyline. Grant Park is an oasis surrounded by high-rises on two sides.

Grants Park is basically a grassy park filled with a few trees and a pathway. Sure, iris nice to sit or walk through to enjoy it's view, but that is about it. There is nothing else there. The park is just 1 street to the other? and they needed to fill it with some nature.

I enjoyed just walking and hanging out at this Chicago park. You really can't go wrong with an of the parks there, especially those that are connected to the lake and the river. Even though it was cold, it was worth the time.

I was expecting more than there was to see in Grant Park. I think the park would be much better to visit in the spring or summer when they have the Buckingham Fountain running. Not a very photogenic shot without the water.
