The Chicago Park District's 9 lakefront harbors stretch from Lincoln Park in the northern part of the city to Jackson Park in the south. With accommodations for more than 5,000 boats, the Chicago Park District Harbors constitute the nation's largest municipal harbor system and feature state-of-the-art floating docks, moorings, star docks, fuel facilities and other amenities for Chicago boaters and their guests. Since 1996, the Park District has invested more than $55 million dollars to renovate and modernize harbor facilities. The harbors are very popular with area boaters and have enjoyed occupancies in excess of 98% for the past several years. The harbors are managed by Westrec Marinas of Encino, California in partnership with the Chicago Park District.
