City dwellers crave this kind of green and open space. This area shows Chicago’s innovation commitment and interest in promoting environmental sustainability and environmental protection. Chicago residents previously believed the Riverside environment was polluted and unappealing and even nearby buildings had no windows overlooking the water. But in the last few years, people have worked together to clean up the city's main water passages and in the year 2015 environmental legislation and the opening of new water treatment facilities has led to a dramatic improvement in water quality.

The Chicago riverwalk attracts many tourists and its ecological value can lead to similar nature projects in other cities. Many innovative methods are used for its design and establishment and other cities in the world can follow this example.
