Chicago Lakefront, Playgrounds, Indoor Pools Reopen After COVID-19 Decreases


The lake shore, its associated parking lots, and public access points to the parking lot east of Lake Shore Drive need to be reopened by Chicago Park District staff, according to an email from a city spokesman. Popular public spaces began to close in March last year, when urban playgrounds were also closed. They were not reopened in the spring, even when other sites reopened after the nationwide closure of the entire corona virus.
