Whether you are looking to relax on the sandy beach soaking in some rays or getting active our beaches are a great summer destination right in the middle of a bustling Chicago. North Shore Beach Park is 0.66 acres.
North Shore Beach Park lies at the southern end of the Rogers Park neighborhood, where North Shore Avenue meets Lake Michigan. The North Shore Park District acquired land from 1909 until 1910. The park became part of the Chicago Park District’s portfolio in 1934 when the 22 park districts were consolidated. In Rogers Park, the beaches met the summertime recreational needs of the residents who lived in the many apartment buildings built in the eastern portion of the community between 1900 and 1930.
North Shore Avenue may take its name from the former Town of North Shore that later became part of Rogers Park or the adjacent street, North Shore Avenue.
