The Chicago Park District owns more than 8,800 acres of parkland, making it the largest municipal park manager in the nation. Visit the Chicago Park District's 597 parks, 26 miles of lakefront, 70 nature areas, & hundreds of programs.
Indian Boundary Park’s lagoon not only contributes to the beauty and ecological health of the landscape, but also it makes the park unique. Most of the parks in Chicago with lagoons are quite large in size such as 200-acre Garfield Park or Jackson Park, which is over 500 acres of property.
Indian Boundary Park is one of only two Chicago parks less than 15 acres in size that have a lagoon. (The other is Auburn Park, located on Chicago’s South Side.) Park lagoons help alleviate flooding, support native vegetation on the shorelines, and provide habitats for birds, fish, turtles, and frogs, as well as dragonflies and other insects.
