While visitors to Skokie's 42 beautiful parks can certainly take a short stroll around almost all of them, eleven parks offer longer circular walking paths, which allow more serious walkers and hikers a chance to really stretch their legs.
Most of the eleven parks have at least one path around the park, however three — Devonshire Park, Emily Oaks Nature Center and Laramie Park — offer two or three options for avid walkers. Park paths range from 1/5 of a mile to a little more than 1/2 a mile, with Laramie Park's perimeter path measuring the longest, coming in at .54 miles.
Below are a list of parks with paths, some with links to maps.
