Jackson Park Tours

Illinois commissioned the creation of Jackson Park in celebration of the World’s Fair back in 1869, but this lakefront destination that’s full of outdoor entertainment options still attracts both locals and tourists long after the fair ended (and after most of it was burned to the ground in 1894).  While two buildings did survive the fire—what’s now the Museum of Science and Industry and the Norway Pavilion—most of what exists in Jackson Park today is newly developed.

Travelers who make their way to the Windy City in warmer weather will find an 18-hole golf course in Jackson Park, scenic nature trails, beachfront along Lake Michigan and a couple of basketball courts. Part of the popular Chicago Lakefront Trail also runs through Jackson Park, making it an ideal destination for visitors who want to log some extra miles a little further afield from the urban streets.

Practical Info

Jackson Park is located at 6401 South Stony Island Avenue in Chicago. It is accessible by taking Metra to 63rd Street. It borders Lake Michigan and is part of the South Shore, Woodlawn and Hyde Park community areas.
