If you're looking for a place in Chicago to get away from it all, then come to a place where you can walk down pebble paved walkways, play tennis or just relax under the luscious trees. This is Grant Park. Named after General Ulysses S. Grant, the park belongs to the citizens of the city. It spreads out over 319-acres and has a dozen tennis courts and 16 softball fields! It is also the venue for many local summer events and concerts. So sit by the beautiful Buckingham Fountain, it's a great way to cool off in summer and has a fabulous view of the city and lake.
