Grant Park and Monroe Street Harbor
Prudential Plaza overlooks the 65-acre Grant Park, which features 12 tennis courts, Petrillo Bandshell, Buckingham Fountain, multiple softball diamonds and underground parking. Adjacent to Grant Park is the Monroe Street Harbor, home of the Chicago Yacht Club.
Directly across Randolph Street from Prudential Plaza is Millennium Park, home to the Pritzker Pavilion and the Harris Theater for Music and Dance. The park also features an ice-skating rink and an interactive fountain.
Lake Shore Drive
Prudential Plaza offers easy access to Lake Shore Drive and its connecting highways, bypassing loop traffic.
Prudential Plaza is just a short walk away from The Art Institute of Chicago and a short cab ride from the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and Adler Planetarium.
The Pedway system connects Prudential Plaza to the Grant Park garage, the Fairmont Hotel, the Athletic Club at Illinois Center and the AON Center. It also leads to the CTA Howard-Dan Ryan subway line and Congress-O’Hare subway line.
This underground walkway networks Prudential Plaza with buildings throughout the Loop, including Macy’s and other retailers, Daley Center, City Hall, State of Illinois Center and the First National Bank buildings.
