History

The Chicago Park District is reclaiming the Chicago River as a major system of parks and water-based recreation for all Chicagoans with the creation of four new boathouses and river launches. The first two boathouses opened in 2013 (Ping Tom and Clark Street). The third location at River Park was completed in 2014. The forth planned boathouse is at Park 571 (2754 S. Eleanor).
