Chicago’s Chess Pavillion

imageOn a warm Chicago day you would be hard pressed to find a more pleasant spot for a game of Chess than the Lincoln Park Chess Pavilion. Built in 1957, it offers nice views of Lake Michigan and the city’s skyline. An overhang protects the risers with built in chess boards from the weather. It even has chess themed sculptures and relief carvings as decorations. So if you are interested in some al fresco Chess in the  Windy City, bring your set to Lincoln  Park.
