History

Formerly known as Park 524, “Harris YMCA,” 6200 S. Drexel Ave., the site was renamed Harriet M. Harris Parkin 2004 as part of an effort by the Chicago Park District Board of Commissioners to recognize the contributions of Chicago women. Harris was a philanthropist and the namesake of the Harriet M. Harris YWCA which operates out of the park. Harris, who grew up in the Woodlawn Community, provided funding in 1971 to build the Harris Center. Her commitment to women and children is exemplified in more than 30 years of initiatives sponsored by the Harris Family Fund and Harris Bank.

This park is located in the Woodlawn Community area.
