Park No. 551

353 North DesPlaines Street
Chicago, IL 60601

Park No. 551, commonly known as Fulton River Park, is a 1-acre green space that was completed in 2008.As part of a planned development, the Fifield Realty Corporation improved the park and donated it to the Chicago Park District.The project provided unique design challenges because two of the adjacent streets Kinzie and DesPlaines Avenues are elevated.Landscape architects Ted Wolff and Associates created terraced levels to address the grade differential caused by the elevated streets.The design also includes a dog friendly area, a playground, and a passive lawn area with shade trees.

Park Hours: 6:00 AM - 11:00 PM
