Palmisano is a case study in urban renewal: a limestone quarry turned landfill turned park, features a hiking/jogging trail, fishing pond, and impressive views of the Chicago skyline.

Hidden gem, climb the hill for breathtaking views of the city. A prairie oasis in the big city.

Palmisano Park, formerly known as Stearns Quarry, is a 26.60-acre site on Chicago’s southwest side in the heart of the Bridgeport community. Beautiful urban park made out of an old Quarry. It offers a rare high spot view of the surrounding area and downtown skyline.
