Ping Tom Memorial Park

Ping Tom Memorial Park Review

Four pillars carved with dragon designs grace the entrance of this park, which is named for Chinatown's most renowned civic leader. The park's 12 beautifully landscaped acres are wedged within the shadows of railroad tracks, cranes, and highways. It is a serene place, with a children's playground and winding walking trails. On the shore of the Chicago River, a large yellow-and-red pagoda is a good place to see the boats float by and the looming Chicago skyline to the north.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
