History

In 1972, the Chicago Park District purchased this property using funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The newly-developed playlot was briefly known as Quince Park. In late 1975, the park district officially redesignated the site Goldberg Park, in honor of Louis Goldberg. Goldberg was an author, naturalist, horticulturist, conservationist, and union leader.
