  • safe enough to nap in, during the day of course
  • The crackheads and old senile people roaming the park are entertaining.
  • The scenery is nice in the summer ;)
  • I remember the good old days of open air drug markets and gang wars... That was before that hipster John Cusack attracted MTV's The Real World here to gentrify the area.
  • What a nice park. A gated area around the playground, big fields for outdoor games, a fountain w/flowers around&benches for relaxing/reading, chess/checkers tables, picnic tables. Good job.
  • Great place to read a book and sit in the sun
  • Like coffee? Check out The WormHole on Milwaukee & Wood!
  • quaint park to rest at...watch out for the meth heads though.
  • I work here every summer from 10am-4pm stop by & say hi sometime
  • Have fun at Wicker Park Fest! Remember to walk up and down Damen, North, Division and Milwaukee for the Sizzling Summer Sidewalk Sale! Oh yeah, we're on twitter too @RackedChicago
  • Kids play in the fountain!
  • Fun place to hang out outside. Busy and happening, always good people watching. Also some quiet areas to sit and read.
  • Just east of Wicker Parks fountain, the chilly spot has hours determined by Mother Nature: When the water is frozen, the rink will be open. For warm sips, head to the nearby Mindys Hot Chocolate.
  • The art & culture. I've watched this areas many transitions and It's been my home since 1992!
  • Sunbathing and people watching
  • Stay out of this park after dark.
