North Kenwood, like the rest of Chicago, experiences all four seasons: summer, fall, winter and spring. North Kenwood is also located immediately next to Lake Michigan, meaning the lake-effect may create sudden and heavy snowfall during the winter months.
The boundaries of North Kenwood are typically agreed to be Muddy Waters Drive to the north, the Chicago Metra Rail and Lake Michigan to the east, East 47th Street to the south, and South Drexel Boulevard to the west.
Gwendolyn Brooks Park is home to a playground and general recreation areas. During nicer weather, they often show movies in this park for you to enjoy with your friends and family. Kennicott Park has a playground, sports facilities, a recreation center, and general recreation areas. Unfortunately, there seem to be no off-leash areas for your pet in North Kenwood, so be courteous and respectful of the requirement to keep your pup on-leash throughout your visit.
Additionally, North Kenwood is immediately next to shoreline for Lake Michigan. There you will find William Davis Park, Sounding Bronzeville Gathering Space, Morgan Point, Oakwood-41st Street Beach, and plenty of walking trails to explore.
