Hours Notes

This natural area is open from 6am to 11pm daily.


Ping Tom Park Natural Area has 2.9 acres of native prairie and wetland habitat, located within Ping Tom Memorial Park in the Chinatown community. After the demolition of Chinatown's only two parks to make way for the Dan Ryan Expressway, two full generations of Chinatown residents grew up without access to local green space. In 1998, under the leadership of one of Chinatown's most noted civic leaders, Ping Tom Memorial Park opened and renewed access to green space in this neighborhood.
