So in this place is a beach, park and the zoo. At different occasions we enjoyed all of these with our family that included a toddler and a teenager. Everyone has fun.

This is such a lovely park. The boats and the water look so pretty. The beach is nearby and there are all of the amenities a person needs: sun, water, shade and restaurants. It is good for families or just a couple on date night.

Lighthouse was awesome and a. Nice walk. Beach was very crowded and noisy. Beautiful views but not a quiet place for couples.

There is a lot going on in the Washington Park area. There is, of course, the nice clean beach as well as a zoo, restaurants, lighthouse, and so on. Plenty to do and lots of photo ops.

If you like to take pictures, and the beach... And if you are very, very lucky, you can get a sunset with the Chicago skyline for a backdrop!

I have always lived in the region, but the best time to visit the beach is this time a year, before all the kids get out of school, when the water is so clear, and the sky is blue. Had a blast with a friend...More
