Lake Shore Park: An Escape From the Everyday
Posted on Jul 16, 2020 by blogger
Enjoy a relaxing green space in downtown Chicago.
Living in the city, it can sometimes feel like you’re constantly surrounded by buildings and concrete. After a while, you find yourself craving a breath of fresh air. There’s just something about taking a break in nature that most people find calming, even those who’d rather skip a camping trip for a posh hotel stay. A bit of greenery and a wide-open space can do the body and mind some good.
Lake Shore Park can provide just that: “Relaxing green space in downtown Chicago!” writes one reviewer on TripAdvisor. “Some Green around the city,” writes another. Whether you want to take your workout outdoors, feel like meditating on some greenery, or just want to sit outside for a while, this space might just be perfect for you.
Totaling more than seven acres, Lake Shore Park features workout space, community and SOAR gardens, and plenty of grassy space to lounge or enjoy a picnic. Take a break from the day-to-day and stop to smell the flowers—literally. Bring your smartphone to stock your Instagram feed with some stunning nature shots or unplug in the sun. No matter how you choose to spend your time at Lake Shore Park, it’s bound to be a welcome break from your typical city life.
