    The 10 Best Neighborhood Parks In Chicago
    It goes without saying that between the world-renowned art and highly-anticipated programming in Millennium Park, the majestic Bloomingdale Trail and Lincoln Park's array of city institutions and lush natural features, Chicago's collective lawn groweth over with outstanding public green spaces. But beyond the tourist-laden headliners, the city's neighborhoods are dotted with prime, if underrated, parkland as well.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 years

    Indian Boundary Park is a gem and is celebrating its centennial this year.

  • Amanda Prideaux Marquette Park Diaspora

    Marquette Park is not safe. People are shot in and near the park on a regular basis.

    I have happy memories of day camp, bike rides, fishing, feeding ducks and ice skating at Marquette in the 70s and 80s with my family and friends. Lithuanian Fest on 69th street every summer was fun. The entire neighborhood was unbelievably immaculate and beautiful. I avoid the area because it's depressing to see it's current condition.

  • JohnL Retired old foggey.

    There are few places in Chicago that are safe. Can not believe any park could be classified as "safe".

    Save The CTA's #11 Lincoln Bus By Drinking A Lot Of Beer
    Photo via shutterstock. One of the most depressing CTA cuts for North Side residents over the past few years was the demise of the #11 bus which ran down Lincoln Avenue. Since its disappearance, community groups, aldermen and business owners have been calling for its return, and the CTA finally listened.
    http://chicagoist.com

  • People are going to have to do a lot of daytime drinking during the week. The bus doesn't run on weekends or after 7pm!

  • Thumbs up not working but I fully agree with you Sasha. They set this bus line up for failure... Plus, whoever wrote this article clearly hasn't taken the bus themselves as they wrote about the one thing that seems harder to do when a bus doesn't run into the evening or even on weekends.
    Next we'll get a news article about how the #11 bus is perfect to take to TOLA next weekend.
