The Jewel of the Nile is a movie with Michael Douglas, and it’s an album by Nice & Smooth. The Jewel of the Seas is a cruise ship. Well, The Glen, a residential and retail development in Glenview Illinois, isn’t a movie, album or ship, but we do have a jewel. It’s called Gallery Park, smack dab in the middle of The Glen. It’s our jewel, and it’s here for all to see and all to enjoy.
Gallery Park is a large, beautiful public area with tons of things to see and do; and it is within easy walking distance of every home in The Glen.
There is Lake Glenview with a stunning lookout tower, great places to fish, piers that are handicap accessible, and a trail along water’s edge.
You’ll find tennis courts, soccer fields, and three walking/jogging paths.
The Glenview Park Center in the park offers swimming, basketball, an indoor walking and running track, and a fully equipped fitness center. It also offers dedicated yoga, Pilates and spin studios. Child care is available…and even a pre-school.
I love taking in a concert at the lakeside Amphitheater where the Glenview Symphony Orchestra plays regularly during summertime.
Little Bear Garden’s water spray and playground is a delightful place for small children to play. When my son was small child we went there (at his urging!) a couple of times each week.
A large meadow welcomes locals to stroll, play and to picnic.
The Glenview Freedom Memorial is located in the park as well as a memorial to the park’s namesake Admiral Daniel Gallery.
Gallery Park is more than what one typically thinks of as a park. It is the center of family life here in The Glen, used and loved by all.
Residents here treasure The Glen’s lifestyle…from the beautiful homes of all varieties to Glen Town Center’s dining and shopping and to the fun of its jewel…Gallery Park.
