Visit the quiet refuge that only Mother Nature can offer.
Everyone knows about the Navy Pier, but have you ventured to nearby Milton Lee Olive Park? It’s just a short walk away from one of Chicago’s most popular attractions and provides the quiet refuge that only Mother Nature can offer. Milton Lee Olive Park has wide, paved paths right along the beauty of the water and offers plenty of shade from gorgeous, towering trees. Take a stroll, or use it as your personal running trail. The park also boasts impressive views of the Chicago skyline for a little impromptu Instagram shoot on the next sunny day, as well as access to neighboring Ohio Street Beach and sprawling green spaces. The next time you have friends visiting from out of town, or you simply want to enjoy the fact that spring has finally sprung, there’s nowhere like Milton Lee Olive Park for a little bit of outdoor adventure. Be sure to make a stop at the war memorial when you visit to commemorate the park’s namesake, Vietnam veteran Milton Lee Olive.
