Canal Origins Park

    This last Sunday (5/6/2018) I revisited Canal Origins Park.   This is the second time I have been to this historic site.    The Park is located at 2840 South Ashland Avenue.   It is at this site that the following can be seen:  South Fork of the South Branch Chicago River  (This is also known as Bubbly Creek); the beginning of the Sanitary and Ship Canal; the South Branch of the Chicago River; the Turning Basin–a remnant of the I and M canal.
