After eating at a Chinese restaurant in Chinese, we decided to go to the nearby park. It's a nice park with a playground. It can be reached via water taxi. Good place for strolling, jogging.

Beautiful park near Chinatown! Great skyline view of downtown Chicago from this park. You can also pick up the water taxi from the park.

On the edge of Chinatown, the park brings together chicago's industrial history with China's aesthetic and the Midwest prairie. And the combination works. In it you'll see children playing in their ground, lovers sitting under willow trees, old Chinese women practicing traditional arts, joggers, strollers,...More

This is such a beautiful and peaceful park right beside Chinatown. Great to walk around in the early evening to see the sunset.

I just love this place. However, there is not that easy to find free (or even paid) parking nearby the entrance. Very nice view of the river, Chicago downtown and a train bridge with a house on it. You can board a water taxi here...More

For a different perspective on Chinatown, go to Ping Tom Park. It has greatly expanded since the last time I was there with all the walking paths located along the south branch of the Chicago River. Great views of the Chicago skyline. You can park...More

Took a water taxi to Ping Tom park thinking there might be Chinese gardens and pagoda-like structures etc based on some online pics... We were mistaken and very disappointed. There is one Chinese inspired structure but if looks like something you'd see at six flags....More

Chinatown
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
