A New Park to Tie Neighborhoods Together

When the Bloomington Line railway ceased operations in Chicago in the late 20th century, it offered the City of Chicago the opportunity to create a new and exciting urban green space. Although the park will take many years to complete, the first phase is already bringing together four neighborhoods by a long, beautiful green ribbon.

The 606 (named after the first three digits of the Chicago zip code) will offer art, history and event spaces, as well as trails for walkers, runners and bikers. Residents and visitors alike are already able to enjoy the park, and it will only get better as the project moves forward.

Utrip Tips

*This is a pretty long park, so check the map for the closest access point to where you're at.
