Maggie Daley Park

Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc.
Contract Value
$45,000,000

A world-class public landscape in the heart of the city of Chicago, this creation is intended to develop park uses and landscape experiences that reflect evolving open space needs of the city.

The project consisted of installing 75,000 cubic yards of lightweight, cost-effective, environmentally safe geofoam to reduce weight on the parking structure below the site. More than 1,000 trees were planted to provide a diverse landscape and attract migrating birds and wildlife. Other components of the park include an intricately designed and constructed "Skating Ribbon"; several unique playground areas; a complex climbing wall; and 50-foot light masts that create a "moon-lit" glow across the park.

Maggie Daley Park is a new world-class public landscape at the heart of the city of Chicago.
