Are Yellow and Purple necessary, or only what’s within city limits? What’s there to see or do at the end of either? Otherwise, just need to go to west ends of Green and both Blue lines.

End of the purple
I can tell you that the Bahai’i (however it’s spelled) Temple is close to the last station of the Purple Line. It’s free to get into the temple itself. I don’t know that it’s worth the trip, but it’s there.
And my opinion is that all stops, in the City or no, are neccessary. Or at least that’s when I’ll cross it off of my list.
DEFINATELY GO to the Bahai'i Temple.
It’s absolutely worth going to the Bahai’i Temple, if you’ve never been. Its a very relaxing and cool place to go to. Plus, if you’re up for doing something more in Wilmette, their downtown is only a 15 minute walk from the Linden stop(via walking 2 blocks north to Central Ave., and heading west).
Oh, and the very underrated Gillson Park Beach is just across the Sheridan Rd. bridge to the north of the Bahai’i Temple. I’m almost 100% certain at this point of the year, the entire beach is free to access(as most of it is stupidly limited to Wilmette residents in the summer). I know it was when I visited it just a few years ago.
And as for the Yellow Line, I use it as a shortcut whenever I’m going to Old Orchard to shop(as it makes the trip up to there a LOT QUICKER, as you only need to take one bus from there to Old Orchard). Plus, you can see a great view of downtown Chicago when you go over the North Shore Channel/Chicago River. Sucks that it doesn’t run on weekends, though.

Gillson Park Beach
Yeah, I almost forgot about this goody in Wilmette.
As for free access, the only part I’ve ever noticed as closed off is the small fenced part. Just park on a nearby street and walk in. That’s what I’ve always done.
Thanks for tips
Now I know there are things to visit up there. Well, the goal post has been moved back, but sounds worth it.
