Youth Escort Policy

Effective May 20, 2022, the Chicago Park District has enacted the following Youth Escort Policy for Maggie Daley Park. Guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult (21 years and older) after 6pm, Thursday through Sunday — and may be asked to present a valid ID. The adult must be present for the duration of the visit and may escort up to four young people.

Picnic Groves

Picnic Groves

The picnic groves offer a perfect day in the park! The 14,200-square-foot space features ten wooden picnic tables at each grove as well as access to water and electricity. The groves can be combined with the adjacent lawn space to accommodate larger groups. A great place to host birthday parties, graduations, and family events! The groves and lawn can be rented out together or separately. There is a 50-person capacity per grove on a first-come, first-served basis.
