Sometimes, you need to look at a couple hills of tall grass. Surprisingly, you can do that right here. On 47th and Cornell, just behind a parking lot, you’ll find the entrance to a small but pleasantly secluded park, part of the Park District’s Burnham Park.
Features run- or walk-able paths and a boardwalk, along with plenty of benches. There are enough paths that you could probably get a good distance in without feeling too boxed in.
