Promontory Point at 55th Street in Hyde Park, started as a land fill in the 30’s. What a great idea! Build a little peninsula jutting out from a bend in the lakefront and create another beautiful view of our skyline. Now, with a family friendly beach, an open water swimming area and a well cared for field house, Promontory Point has become a destination for all. If you go on a weekend you are sure to see a few brides being photographed.
