Good news for walkers, bikers and joggers! The Chicago lakefront will reopen in the coming weeks. The Chicago Park District will unlock gates and prepare playgrounds and play spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy again.
Indoor swimming pools will also reopen, but will only offer limited aquatic programs which begin on March 8.
It will be so good to see Chicago's lakefront come back to life with activity now that coronavirus restrictions are being eased. Hopefully pretty soon we can say everything is being reopened, but until that time please continue to practice safety measures. After all, we are still in a pandemic.
