16 Mar Grant Park:
I had an appointment in Long Island. When I was done, I looked for a park nearby. I couldn’t believe what a beautiful park I came across in the city. The park is located on a sprawling 35 acres. There are multiple playgrounds for all ages, with a separate enclosed playground for the very little ones. In the summer there are sprinklers for the kids to enjoy.
There is a sports complex with fields for baseball, basketball, tennis, paddleball and a skating area. There is also an adult workout station. Picnic tables and grills are near the beautiful lake. Fishing is permitted in the lake or a walk on the path is fun too.
I was surprised to see an outdoor ice rink at the park when we visited in the winter. Ice skates are available for rental. In the summer the rink is transformed into a skating rink.
