Maggie Daley Park is a 20-acre (81,000 m2) public park in the Loop community area of Chicago operated by the Chicago Park District and managed by MB Real Estate. It is near the Lake Michigan shoreline in northeastern Grant Park where Daley Bicentennial Plaza previously stood. Maggie Daley Park, like its predecessor, is connected to Millennium Park by the BP Pedestrian Bridge. Designed by landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh, the park had its ceremonial ribbon cutting on December 13, 2014, and is named for Maggie Daley, the former first lady of the city who died of cancer in 2011. The park was almost entirely remade with multiple new features including a new field house, an ice skating ribbon, climbing walls, landscaping and children's playground. An older section of the park maintains a garden dedicated earlier to honor cancer survivors. The park is bounded by Randolph Street, Monroe, Columbus and Lake Shore Drives. Construction took 2 years and cost $60 million, including rebuilding an underground parking lot.

The best urban park! I love all the climbing. It is really meeting gross motor skills development! It is also beautiful. I love seeing the skyscrapers peak through the trees. I also love that the park is segmented into various small, can keep your eyes on kids areas. Though I will also add it felt very safe.
Beautiful green space in the city. It allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life for a little while. The children's park there is awesome. Almost everything is covered with shock absorbing material in case a young one falls. The multi use activity area is well designed. There can be a multitude of people there and kids can still run around and have fun!
