Chicago’s Promontory Point is a man-made, twelve-acre peninsula, jutting out into Lake Michigan from Burnham Park. Local Chicagoans simply call it “the Point”. It was created as part of a long-term project to develop new parkland along the Lake Michigan shore. A limestone seawall called a revetment was built to protect Promontory Point from the pounding of the tides. Since the 1930s the Point has been a popular place for picnickers and sunbathers. It provides a dramatic view of the Chicago skyline. During the summer there are frequent fireworks displays launched from nearby Navy Pier, and Promontory Point is the best location from which to watch the show. It is one of the most popular places in Chicago on the Fourth of July.

The Point draws many people who cycle, jog, and walk their dogs. It is the site of the fawn-shaped David Wallach Memorial Fountain, designed in 1939 by Elizabeth and Frederick Hibbard. There is also a stone Field House that is often used for wedding receptions and corporate events. Swimming is officially prohibited here, because of deep and dangerous waters. However, there is a good swimming beach nearby. Discount hotels in Chicago near Promontory Point have excellent accommodations and are close to public transit.
