Chicago's Lakefront

Chicago's Lakefront

Openlands believes that our lakefront should be public open space, accessible to all with unobstructed views.

Connecting people to nature where they live.

Openlands’ vision for the Chicago region is a landscape that includes a vast network of land and water trails, tree-lined streets, and intimate public gardens within easy reach of everyone. Openlands has helped secure, protect, and provide public access to more than 55,000 acres of land for parks, forest preserves, land and water greenway corridors, and urban gardens. Learn More ›
