Ping Tom Memorial Park
Situated along the south branch of the Chicago River, this 12 acre park was dedicated in honor of Ping Tom, Chinatown?s most prominent civic leader. Adjacent to an impressive 195 foot vertical lift bridge, the park is a tranquil rolling oasis inspired by a traditional Chinese walled garden. Stroll through its four distinctive spaces – an entry plaza, a playground, a memorial plaza and the riverfront plaza, that provide a vibrant public space reflecting the culture and traditions of this community. Other notable features include a Pagoda Style Pavilion and Chinese landscape design elements.
