New Park Downtown ChicagoA new park is now open in Chicago’s Lakeshore East neighborhood. Cascade Park is a privately developed park that helps connect up the Chicago Lakefront Trail to Harbor Drive.

The new green space slopes down from North Harbor Drive to Lower Lake Shore Drive and the lakefront trail. Crews first began working on the green space in mid 2019.

The sidewalk switches back and forth to frame some flatter grassy areas. It’s thought these could be used for social gatherings and recreational activities. Some sculptures in the park double as seating areas.

At the bottom of the green space, some walking and bike paths link Lakeshore East Park to the trail and DuSable Harbor. A lower part of the park is dog-friendly and being called Cascade Bark.

The new park is seen as a more aesthetically pleasing and functional solution to service drives and sidewalks. Two new residential buildings recently joined the area as well, including the new Cascade apartment tower and the new Cirrus condo building.
