Chicago's Douglas Park is a historic regional park that offers many recreational and cultural opportunities for visitors.
About Douglass Park
Located in the North Lawndale community and parts of Pilsen neighborhood, Douglas Park Cultural & Community Center totals 161.85 acres. Outdoors, the park offers tennis courts, a game day football stadium, an outdoor pool, water spray features, basketball courts, an artificial turf soccer field, a pavilion, baseball fields and a small golf putting range.
Douglas Park also offers three newly renovated playgrounds as part of Mayor Emanuel’s Chicago Plays! Program. In summer 2016, a playground on the west end of the park was renovated and renamed Sunshine Daydream Playground, in honor of a Grateful Dead song. This new playground offers an interactive water fountain and music-themed play equipment that is accessible for children of all ages and ability levels.
