Riverwalk location - beneath the Lake Shore Drive Bridge


This trellised, cast-concrete 127 foot long walkway is designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill linking the Chicago Riverwalk with Chicago’s lakefront.  It includes 28 ceramic panels that depict the rise of Chicago and the significance of the river to the city.  There are 14 panels on each side which present a pictorial narrative of the City’s history as it is entwined to the Chicago River.
