Green Chicago & Sustainability

The beauty of Chicago lies not only in its magnificent downtown architecture, but also in the city's vast preserved green space. Chicagoans and locals have nearly 600 parks, dozens of gardens and 8100 acres of grass, flowers and trees at their disposal. With beaches, ice rinks and an 18-mile long bike path, there's no shortage of options for Chicago's active visitors and locals.
