Chicago Park District removes unofficial sign declaring ‘nude beach’ in Rogers Park

The Chicago Park District has removed an unofficial sign declaring a “nude beach” at Loyola Beach in Rogers Park after it was apparently placed there by a citizen.

The sign’s presence was brought to attention by 49th Ward Ald. Maria Hadden, who represents the area in the Chicago City Council.

A statement from a Chicago Park Districts spokesperson confirmed that the sign was unauthorized and had been removed Monday afternoon.

An additional note on Hadden’s Facebook page noted that the precise location was proposed to be a nude sunbathing beach by Ald. George A. Williston in 1932, a time when City Council controlled parks.
