Burnham Park

Burnham-Photo-RT  

Burnham Park is a public park that connects Grant Park at 14th Street to Jackson Park at 56th Street. The park was created in 1927 and named after urban planner and architect Daniel H. Burnham who in the 1909 Plan of Chicago envisioned a south lakefront park with a series of man-made islands, linear boating harbor, beaches, meadows, and play fields.

The park is often used for hosting special events, including home games for the NFL’s Chicago Bears at Soldier Field, concerts, marathons, and festivals. The 600-acres park provides beautifully landscaped grounds and family areas in the Children’s Garden and Colonnades, and features a Veteran’s Memorial with a Doughboy Statue and Memorial Water Wall to commemorate the men and women of the armed services.

Popular nearby attractions include the Field Museum; McCormick Place; Shedd Aquarium; Adler Planetarium; Promontory Point; skate park at 31st street; beaches located at 12th Street, 31st Street, Oakwood, and 57th Street; bird sanctuaries; and the FirstMerit Bank Pavilion.
