It's Time to Nominate Chicago's Best Beaches, Parks & More

Curbed's second-ever Outdoors Week is right around the corner! In just one week, we'll be coming at you with coverage of Chicago's great outdoors. We'll be exploring the city's best public green spaces, mapping some of Chicago's must-see murals and offering guidance for quick camping retreats. Of course, your help here is essential.

Are you and your canine friend especially obsessed with a particular dog park? Nominate your favorite spot for eternal glory by writing us a short description of what makes it so great and why you and your dog love it. Send all photos and dog-friendly spot endorsements to, or leave us a comment on this post.

Next up: What are Chicago's most epic yet overlooked park spaces? This is not the time to talk up Grant Park here. Instead, this is a chance to throw a spotlight on a great park that doesn't get enough attention but deserves much more love.

And finally: We want you to tell us which public beaches along Lake Michigan you think are the best. Do you know of a spot with a stellar view? Show us! Does it offer up the best people watching? Best spots to grill, or just relax? Know of any other great public swimming pools, or hotels with a a great outdoor pool? We want to hear about it! Again, send all nominations and photos to This will be fun.
