Suburban Skyview: Scenic overlook at Lake Glenview creates a suburban oasis
Situated on a hill on the northeast edge of Lake Glenview, a scenic overlook is part of an aerial view of a suburban oasis taken on a recent spring afternoon.
Once part of Naval Air Station Glenview, which closed in 1995, 45-acre lake and surrounding Gallery Park provide visitors with numerous opportunities for recreation.
Subtle elements in the photo include a fisherman trying his luck on the shoreline below the overlook, and the Chicago skyline on the horizon toward the upper left.
Even in mid-May, tall grass has yet to turn green, and wildflowers have yet to appear. The wait will be worth it, though; by late summer, a number of blooms will provide a burst of color to the scene.
