I am now 70 an have so often come to the harbor. When I no longer can ride my bike there i want to be able to park there without a huge cost to enjoy this public park.

This is my favorite refuge in the city. I rely on its beauty, its variety, its spaciousness, and on being able to get within walking distance, without having to pay. Parking fees here would make it inaccessible to many like me. The lakefront was always one of the city's best protections of its people's well-being, and this space, especially, where many have worked hard to protect the birds and the natural habitat, should be kept free and accessible to all.

It’s outrageous to charge people to go to the park. Especially because so many people don’t have access to parks. Chicago you should be ashamed of yourself. Especially Cappelman and the Mayor. Shame on you. No votes from me.

The lake is a crucial resource for all Chicagoans. Keep it open for everyone!

The burden of excessive taxes and fees for services like parking in Chicago is out of control. If you want to drive the middle class, seniors and poor out, this is a sure fire formula. $25 for parking at a public park is too much!

We love our lake and it used to be one of the places you could go for free with family and friends and it should stay that way. People can't afford these parking fees unless they are getting a good income and this is not fair.

Received a $50 ticket for being parked less than an hour. Years coming to this spot to park, never paid a cent before. Spend $100 a year on a city sticker for what?!

Accss to the lakefront should be free of charge.
