Go For A Hike And Then Rock Climbing On An Old Ore Wall At Steelworkers Park In Illinois

Illinois has so many unique outdoor places for all to enjoy, even in the city. Located in a neighborhood of South Chicago, the property of an abandoned steel mill was transformed into a beautiful park in 2002. Featuring lake views, pathways, natural areas, remnants of the historic mill, and recreational activities, Steelworkers Park provides a wonderful place to escape from city life.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
