“Our summer fun will be focused on water! We love the all-family appeal of Raging Waves Water Park. From water slides to the lazy river, we spend all day here and never get bored. Our favorite swimming spot is Chicago’s Pulaski Park Pool. Not only is there a large, warm pool that starts three feet down to a deep end, there is also a water playground with zero-depth entry to just 1½ feet deep. Slides, tunnels and spray will keep little ones splashing for hours. Lastly, we love Adams Playground Park. We head here on hot, humid Friday evenings after an early dinner and splash and play until the water shuts off at 8 p.m. Walking through the dusky streets of Lincoln Park (with a stop for ice cream on Armitage Avenue, of course!) is a wonderful way to spend a summer evening with the kids.”
