Green belt

Boulevard route

We took an inner city tour of Chicago today riding the 100 year old tree lined historic Boulevard system. From Jackson and Washington Park in the south; along Garfield and Western; past Sherman, Gage and McKinley Park; through Douglas, Garfield and Humboldt Parks; then through Logan Square, it offers a great cross section through Chicago. The gilt Statue of the Republic, located in Jackson Park, erected in 1918, is a golden reminder of the 1893 World’s Colombian Exposition.
