A little sweaty after all that cycling? No problem. "Humboldt Park is an inner-city gem.” says Doug. “The beaches and lakefront public park spaces are well known to many, but I’d encourage visitors to the city to venture inland to some of the many other beautiful spots. Humboldt Park is a diverse neighborhood, but its heart is the park itself. If you’re not local, you'll be surprised it's such a big, lush, forest-y oasis."
Where to find it: Humboldt Park is located on the West Side of Chicago. Despite being inner city and not as well-known as some of Chicago’s other green spaces, it actually totals 219 acres and offers gyms, an inland beach, soccer fields, a lagoon, tennis courts and a replica of the Wrigley Field.
