The Skokie Sculpture Park borders Evanston along the western bank of the river and McCormick Blvd.

With a meandering path running through it, the park is a favorite of joggers, cyclists and power walkers. Over 80 sculptures are placed at random intervals along the length of the 2 mile-long park. The Evanston corridor runs from Howard north to Dempster Street. A cluster of International Flags at Dempster honors the ethnic groups living in the community. You can learn more about the artists and virtually tour the park on its own site: www.sculpturepark.org.

Address: Western perimeter of Evanston
Directions: Between McCormick Blvd. and the Chicago River Channel. Parking lot is located just south of the flags at Dempster Street.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
