The Bloomingdale: Chicago's Next Great Park
Imagine a 3-mile-long elevated linear park and trail running through the heart of Chicago, connecting neighborhoods, the river, and Chicago's great park system. Built from a former rail line, The Bloomingdale will make Chicago's residents healthier, get people to school and work faster, and provide communities with great chances to play and mingle. Sign up for our newsletter, support the project with a donation, and help realize this vision for Chicago’s Next Great Park!
