Navy Pier, Chicago’s largest tourist attraction, will begin a phased reopening starting June 10, with outdoor seating, outdoor parks and docks opening first.
The parking garage, Polk Bros. Park, Peoples Energy Welcome Pavilion, the North and South Docks, Tour Boats, Navy Pier East End Plaza and select free programs will begin the reopening.
Outdoor restaurant spaces as well as kiosks and retailers with outdoor spaces will also reopen.
Gatherings of more than 10 are prohibited and events that will attract large crowds will not be part of the Phase 1 reopening of the pier. Guests over the age of 2 will be required to wear masks, and masks are available for purchase at the pier.
Social Distance Ambassadors will walk the pier to remind guests to remain six feet away from patrons not in their party and monitor gathering sizes.
Centennial Wheel guests will ride only with their own party and gondolas will be wiped down after each ride. The wheel will also shut down for 15 minutes every two hours for a full wheel cleaning.
The Chicago Children’s Museum and Chicago Shakespeare Theater will remain closed during the first phase of the reopening plan.
