There's a bit of sand at this downtown beach, but there's no beach house or washroom. But it is near Navy Pier and lots of downtown hotels, which attracts a lot of tourists. Locals also make the journey from nearby Lake Point Tower, and triathletes in wetsuits use the area to train. One major drawback is that when it's warm, boaters creep closer and closer to the marked-off swimming area, scaring bathers and spreading gas fumes.
