“lakefront park dedicated to nature”

Northerly Island is a 91-acre (370,000 m2) man-made peninsula along Chicago's lakefront. The site of the Adler Planetarium, Northerly Island connects to the mainland through a narrow isthmus along Solidarity Drive dominated by Neoclassical sculptures of Kościuszko, Havliček and Copernicus. With the demolition of Meigs Field Airport, it is now a part of the Museum Campus and slated to be converted into parkland. A temporary concert venue, the Charter One Pavilion occupies the site of the former airport.

This place used to be an old airport which was controversially shut down in 2003 by Chicago's Mayor at the time, Richard Daley. The air port was used to fly in politicians and businessmen. Now it is a green space and park with incredible views of the city and Lake Michigan, a biking/walking/running path, hills, and a pond.
