CLOSURES ALERT Do to COVID-19 Response

Remember to practice Social Distancing at all times!

The Chicago Park District has currently closed the Lakefront and adjacent parks, beaches and trails. To learn more, visit the official Chicago Park District website.

Open Parks

The Following Parking lots remain OPEN:

  • Lunt
  • Touhy
  • 55th
  • Challenger
  • Diversey Driving Range
  • Broadway
  • Margate
  • Conservatory
  • Big Marsh

Payment is required in the parking lots seven days a week, year-round during the hours the lot is open. Parking is NOT permitted in the lots after closing in the evening.

The best way to practice your park social distancing is in large, wide-open spaces. Maybe it’s just a walk down the block, or maybe it’s an opportunity to check out a park you wouldn’t normally frequent like Big Marsh. Remember to visit solo or only with your immediate household, and to maintain the 6ft. rule throughout your journey. Visit here for a complete listing of open Chicago Park District Parks.
