Riis Park Safety?

Hey Guys,

Just finally moved into the neighborhood and noticed the park. It looks beautiful, but overall is it a safe place to go walking/are there better times of the day to go?

I moved from the Portage Park neighborhood and frequented Portage Park itself so was just wondering how it compared to that.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

  • To tell you the truth
    nothing is safe today maybe someday thangs
    will change for now no and
    congratulations on your new place

  • Agree with SS above - generally speaking it’s a fun place to go in the summer while the sun it out. Great little Farmers Market on Sundays - has a dog park and huge swimming pool. There are some people, like anywhere, who get loud, messy and are a bit shady.

    Only in day or with people present.
