Located in the Woodlawn community, Harris Park totals 2.20 acres and features a gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, fitness center, youth wellness center and a multi-purpose room. Many of these spaces are available for rental including our multi-purpose room.

Park-goers can participate in the Park Kids after, seasonal sports, adult & youth fitness classes, aquatics, and Teen Club. On the cultural side, Harris Park offers tap, hip hop, jazz, and modern dance. After school programs are offered throughout the school year, and in the summer youth attend the Park District’s popular six-week day camp.

In addition to programs, Harris Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the entire family such as holiday themed-events.

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.

Description

Located in the Woodlawn community, Harris Park totals 2.20 acres and features a gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, fitness center, youth wellness center and a multi-purpose room. Many of these spaces are available for rental including our multi-purpose room.

Park-goers can participate in the Park Kids after, seasonal sports, adult & youth fitness classes, aquatics, and Teen Club. On the cultural side, Harris Park offers tap, hip hop, jazz, and modern dance. After school programs are offered throughout the school year, and in the summer youth attend the Park District’s popular six-week day camp.

In addition to programs, Harris Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the entire family such as holiday themed-events.

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.
