For Climbing with a View: Maggie Daley
The Climb: Take all other parks, give them a dose of steroids, and you have Maggie Daley Park. It's that cool. While there's certainly areas within the play structure you can climb, the Wave Hill is a 16,530 square foot play area with a rolling topography where kids can climb what feels like a mountain to them, roll down, and do it all over again.
337 E. Randolph St.
