EXPLORE CHINATOWN

Chinatown Neighborhood Stamp

Ping Tom Park

On our southern border, Chinatown begins at the award-winning Ping Tom Memorial Park, and then stretches to become one of Chicago’s most famous places.

The center is Chinatown Square, an outdoor pavilion with shops, dining, zodiacs and twin climbable pagodas.

The Chinese-American and the Chinese American Veterans Museums tell the stories of the neighborhood. And authentic Chinese markets and restaurants dot the landscape.
