Ohio Street Beach
Ohio Street Beach is located in the Streeterville neighborhood adjacent to Jane Addams Memorial Park and the Jardine Water Filtration Plant. The Lakefront Trail winds its way past this beach, which faces directly north.
Due to its unusual orientation, Ohio Street Beach serves as an ideal training site for open water swimming. One can swim north 0.5 miles (800 m) to the Oak Street curve without ever being more than a few feet from the seawall and shallow water.
