One of the world's most beautiful lake shore boulevards is right here - Lake Shore Drive. Sometimes referred to as 'The Outer Drive' or 'LSD', Lake Shore Drive extends from W. Hollywood Avenue at the north end (5700 North) to E. 67th St. at Jackson Park, at the south end, about 16 miles in length. There are six (6) Chicago Parks along Lake Shore Drive. Starting from the north, they are: 1) Lincoln Park, 2) Lake Shore Park, 3) Olive Park, 4) Grant Park, 5) Burnham Park and 6) Jackson Park.
