Lakeshore East Spring Flowers 1024x683

As the Chicago days warm into springtime, residents of the luxury Lakeshore East apartments at Cascade can avail themselves an abundance of nearby parks and greenery. Now's the time to turn those dreams of blooming tulips, family picnics, and sun-dappled strolls into a reality.

Lakeshore East Park
Cascade overlooks the rose gardens and mature trees of Lakeshore East Park, and even if you're having a lazy day, it's not too much effort to roll out of bed and take a stroll (or even a jog) through its winding paths. In spring, this space is vibrant with tulips, and come summer, you can cool off by the park's several fountains. Tots can have adventures in the playground while you watch from the shade of the trees, and someone else who'll love Lakeshore East Park is your four-legged friend—who can cut loose in the dog areas.

Maggie Daley Park
It's a mere 10-minute wander from Cascade's luxury apartments to Maggie Daley Park, which provides a cornucopia of outdoor activities that'll keep you busy from now till next winter. Challenge family and friends to a round of mini golf, scale the dizzying heights of the park's climbing wall, or work on your backhand at the tennis courts. Kids will delight in whizzing around on skates and mini scooters (for rent), and the bungee's lots of fun too. Picnic groves are perfect for putting on an outdoor spread, or you could just grab a Vienna Chili Cheese Dog from the Rink Cafe . And whenever it's needed, find tranquillity and reflectiveness in the floral oasis of the Cancer Survivors' Garden.

Cascade Park
Directly on the doorstep of Cascade sits Cascade Park, a stylishly landscaped green terrace wending its way down toward the lakefront. Here, you can recline on the lawns—popping with pink cherry blossoms this time of the year—with a good book or a lunchtime sandwich. Or grab a coffee and sip it while enjoying the limestone and wood wellness sculptures. Whenever your pooch demands “walkies,” take them to Cascade Park's dog-friendly "Cascade Bark." Residents only dog-washing station at Cascade will have your pet spruced up in no time. But you needn't even step outside to enjoy this green space—simply take in the views from the Cascade's conservatory, admiring one beautiful garden from the comfort of another.
