The Run Down

Travel south along the Lakefront Trail and you'll eventually reach the entrance to a South Side palace. Sitting on over 70 acres, this public space, dubbed "a palace for the people," is the focus of this guide. We'll visit a historical landmark and take a stroll through a nature reserve where we uncover stone fire pits overlooking Lake Michigan.
