McCormick Place Bird Sanctuary

Chicago’s newest lakefront preserve for migratory birds occupies the top of the underground parking garage of the City’s main convention center. A 3-acre fenced area for prairie grasses and wildflowers has an observation platform on the east side, and an additional 3-acre prairie and trail to the south are open for general birding. In addition, the site boasts a stone water feature to attract even more birds.
