“spectacular view of the city skyline”
This popular Gold Coast/Streeterville neighborhood hotspot offers many amenities and a spectacular view of the city skyline. This beach hosts a number of popular amateur and professional volleyball tournaments throughout the summer. In 2011, Jeff Zimmermann created the mural entitled “You Know What You Should Do.” This art can be found along a wall running parallel to the Lakefront Trail at the access point to the Oak Street Beach underpass. The mural, measuring about 260 feet in length and 9 feet tall at the very center, raises awareness of beach health and water-quality issues. Its message reminds the public to help keep the beaches clean. The project was funded through a grant from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative through the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
Oak Street beach is a great place to spend a nice sunny day away from the busy city life. Although it looks as if you are within the city due to the fact that there are skyscrapers overlooking the beach, you get to relax and get a nice suntan.
The water is clean, the beach tends to be overcrowded as it is very close to the city, but you can spend a nice time while being there, swimming, playing beach volley and sunbathing.
Good for a quick swim at the sea during your work break.
