Maggie Daley Park is a 20-acre (81,000 m2) public park in the Loop community area of Chicago. It is near the Lake Michigan shoreline in northeastern Grant Park where Daley Bicentennial Park once stood.[1][2] Designed by landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh, the park had its ceremonial ribbon cutting on December 13, 2014, and is named for Maggie Daley.[3] The park is bounded by Randolph Street, Monroe, Columbus and Lake Shore Drives.
