"While I certainly understand (and in many respects agree with) the city's stance that the river through downtown is an active boating channel and is probably not safe for recreational boaters, once you get north of Goose Island, this is no longer the case. I think it is the neighborhoods that have the most to gain from cleaning up the river, not the tourist areas. Through a pretty good stretch of the north side (North Shore Channel Trail) there is already park along the banks of the river, adding river access would only enhance those areas. It is not uncommon to see river otters and other wildlife already enjoying the area." —FrankMc [Learning to Not Fear the River]
