Uptown's "Coast" Reborn

We told you in August 2022 about the ICA "Coast" programming that led the Chicago Park District to rethink an area of Lincoln Park just north of Wilson and south of Lawrence.

Called the Uptown Coastal Natural Area, the ambitious plan sought to replace a long and underused stretch of grass with native plants more typical of the former coast line of Lake Michigan.

Now the Uptown Coastal Natural Area is open to the public. Go and enjoy, and please heed the request that visitors stay on the paths and be kind to the new seedlings as the plants continue to settle in.
