From the 1830s onwards, people were digging holes in Bridgeport - particularly in what became Stearns Quarry, a 26-acre site with limestone extraction on an industrial scale for over a century. Since 2009, however, the now-filled holes have been transformed into Palmisano Park, and Chicago's natural flora and fauna have set up home. Hear about how it was transformed - and get some impressive views of the city skyline as you go - with an audio tour from the Chicago Park District, starting at 27th and Halstead.
