Parks don't generate tax revenue. Airports do.
Exactly! And especially stupid parks like this one. It’s not really near anything other than McCormick Place. People visiting Chicago or living downtown go to Grant Park when they want to visit the park, not the flat featureless Park where Meigs is. I always thought it was a campground?
Have been there a few times over the past few years. Minimal improvements and limited usage.
