Maggie Daley Park charmed us with its ice skating loop, challenged us with its climbing structures and thrilled us with its amazing play garden. It's easy to spend an entire day playing at this beautiful park, thanks to the tennis courts, picnic groves and fun, family-friendly events. Now there's yet another amazing thing to do at Chicago's best and brightest new park: City Mini Golf!
City Mini Golf, located at the south end of the BP Bridge in beautiful Maggie Daley Park (337 E. Randolph Street), is calling all mini-golfers to tee off this summer season (through October) at its fab, Chicago-themed miniature golf course. Whether you're a local or a tourist, this is one mini-golf course you won't want to miss.
The 18-hole course's hills, dips and ramps fit right into the park's curvilinear pathways and challenge even the most die-hard mini-golfers to up their game. A multi-level hole, boulders with putt-through tunnels and other obstacles promise to separate the amateurs from the pros.
Replicas of iconic Chicago structures — a six-foot tall Willis Tower! — and sports references — a basketball hoop! — remind you that you're in Chicago. There's even a Plinko-inspired replica of the city's Picasso sculpture. But it's the breathtaking skyline that make this mini-golf course a one-of a kind, truly Chicago experience.
City Mini Golf is open 10:00 am - 9:00 pm, seven days a week (weather permitting) — last golfers must check in 15 minutes prior to close. General Admission is $11 for adults, $9 for educators, senior citizens and active duty military. Children four and under play free with paid admission.
Parking is available on Randolph Street (metered) and at Millennium Lakeside Garage (snag discounted parking available by pre-purchasing here). Bike parking is readily available at the perimeters of the park.
