Foss Park in North Chicago - Sea Glass Report

by Chris
(Goshen, Indiana)

Foss Park is next to the Naval Training Center in North Chicago and right next to the water filtration plant. 

It's a small beach area that you get to by folowing the winding road down to the filtration plant.

Lots of glass to find -- fair to good jewlery grade to be found. 

We also found lots of green, and even a red and yellow on three trips there over a couple of days.

We appreciate this and all reports we receive. However, when evaluating a report, use good judgment.

  • No photos were included with this report.
  • No detailed description of the sea or beach glass found was included in this report or how much jewelry-grade found in one hour.
Comments from David and Lin:

From its location, this beach appears to have the right setup for good sea glass!

As always, we remind folks that sea glass beach reports are not confirmed by Lin or me at Odyssey Sea Glass unless otherwise stated.

Reports that do not include photos of the sea glass found are less reliable.

So use your own judgement in deciding whether to travel to a particular beach or not.
