Hours Notes

Natural areas are open from dawn to dusk daily.


Over 6 acres of native dune habitat flourish at Loyola Park Natural Area along Lake Michigan in the East Rogers Park neighborhood. Here visitors can spot nesting shorebirds and a variety of native dune forbs and grasses. Natural areas along the lakefront help stabilize the shoreline, minimize erosion, and reduce sand deposition in other areas of the park.
