Climbing Wall

One of the largest of its kind in the world, adventure seekers of all ages—and skill levels—can take advantage of the custom-designed sculptural rocks and boulders of this must-experience attraction. The rock climbing walls come in at 40-feet high and are divided into different sections for beginners and advanced climbers. Rock climbing in an outdoor, urban setting? Only in Chicago. Ready to Play? Book your climbing online using the code CONCIERGE for $5 off.

Skating Ribbon

Goodbye ice! While a winter staple for locals and visitors alike, the ever-popular ice skating ribbon transforms its meandering path into a haven for roller skaters, bladers, and scooters during the warmer months. So bust out those knee knocks and wrist guards and roll your way through this urban oasis. Rentals available on site for $12.

Mini Golf

Grab your friends for some mini-golf! This 18-hole course features replicas of many Chicago attractions and icons so get your Boomerang app ready as you’ll be putting underneath a 6-foot tall Willis Tower and up a Plinko-inspired replica of the Picasso sculpture.

Play Garden

The southeast section of the park is anchored by a three-acre play garden, the first of its kind in Chicago. Designed in the spirit of “Alice in Wonderland” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” it’s meant to spark imagination and get kids moving in a landscape that’s a bit surreal and fanciful. There are challenges for all levels, from toddlers up to grade schoolers.
