Located in the Pilsen community, Harrison Park totals 17.39 acres and features a field house with a gymnastics center, an indoor swimming pool, a gymnasium, a computer lab, meetings rooms and a reception rotunda featuring a bust of Emiliano Zapata, one of the most prominent figures of the Mexican Revolution. Outside, the park offers tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball fields, athletic fields for football or soccer, a playground and a community garden.

Many of these spaces are available for rental. Harrison Park is also located adjacent to the National Museum for Mexican Art. Park-goers come to Harrison Park to play soccer, baseball and tennis, or go swimming in the indoor pool.

On the cultural side, Harrison Park offers many activities in conjunction the neighboring museum. After school programs are offered throughout the school year, and in the summer youth attend the Park District's popular six-week day camp. Specialty camps are offered in the summer as well, including therapeutic recreation camps for children and adults.

In addition to programs, Harrison Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the whole family, such as Movies in the Park and other holiday activities.

History

The West Park Commission created Harrison Park in 1912 to provide breathing space and social services to the overcrowded and industrialized lower west side. The commission's first three neighborhood parks, Dvorak, Eckhart, and Stanford Parks, were so successful that the State passed a bill permitting additional neighborhood parks in 1909. (Stanford Park no longer exists.)

The Special Park Commission identified several potential park sites, including an eight-acre parcel previously used for lime production. The West Park Commission acquired the lime kiln site and renowned landscape designer Jens Jensen created the park's original plan. Swimming and wading pools and a natatorium building were constructed in 1914.

Within the next several years, other recreational features including children's gardens were added, however, the park did not have a fieldhouse until 1928. In 1950, the Chicago Park District expanded the intensively-used small park by acquiring a stone quarry at its western boundary.

During the following years, the neighborhood's Latino population grew, and in 1987, the natatorium was converted to the National Museum of Mexican Art. In 1993, a new state-of-the-art fieldhouse replaced the original facility.

The park honors one of Chicago's most popular mayors, Carter H. Harrison, Sr. (1825-1893). A native Kentuckian who settled near Union Park, Harrison served as mayor for five terms between 1879 and 1893. He was assassinated by a disappointed office seeker late on the day of October 28, 1893. Ironically, the day had been designated Mayor's Day in Harrison's honor because it marked the closing of the World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago's first world's fair. There is a monument to Harrison in Union Park.

Description

Located in the Pilsen community, Harrison Park totals 17.39 acres and features a field house with a gymnastics center, an indoor swimming pool, a gymnasium, a computer lab, meetings rooms and a reception rotunda featuring a bust of Emiliano Zapata, one of the most prominent figures of the Mexican Revolution. Outside, the park offers tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball fields, athletic fields for football or soccer, a playground and a community garden.

Many of these spaces are available for rental. Harrison Park is also located adjacent to the National Museum for Mexican Art. Park-goers come to Harrison Park to play soccer, baseball and tennis, or go swimming in the indoor pool.

On the cultural side, Harrison Park offers many activities in conjunction the neighboring museum. After school programs are offered throughout the school year, and in the summer youth attend the Park District's popular six-week day camp. Specialty camps are offered in the summer as well, including therapeutic recreation camps for children and adults.

In addition to programs, Harrison Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the whole family, such as Movies in the Park and other holiday activities.

The West Park Commission created Harrison Park in 1912 to provide breathing space and social services to the overcrowded and industrialized lower west side. The commission's first three neighborhood parks, Dvorak, Eckhart, and Stanford Parks, were so successful that the State passed a bill permitting additional neighborhood parks in 1909. (Stanford Park no longer exists.)

The Special Park Commission identified several potential park sites, including an eight-acre parcel previously used for lime production. The West Park Commission acquired the lime kiln site and renowned landscape designer Jens Jensen created the park's original plan. Swimming and wading pools and a natatorium building were constructed in 1914.

Within the next several years, other recreational features including children's gardens were added, however, the park did not have a fieldhouse until 1928. In 1950, the Chicago Park District expanded the intensively-used small park by acquiring a stone quarry at its western boundary.

During the following years, the neighborhood's Latino population grew, and in 1987, the natatorium was converted to the National Museum of Mexican Art. In 1993, a new state-of-the-art fieldhouse replaced the original facility.

The park honors one of Chicago's most popular mayors, Carter H. Harrison, Sr. (1825-1893). A native Kentuckian who settled near Union Park, Harrison served as mayor for five terms between 1879 and 1893. He was assassinated by a disappointed office seeker late on the day of October 28, 1893. Ironically, the day had been designated Mayor's Day in Harrison's honor because it marked the closing of the World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago's first world's fair. There is a monument to Harrison in Union Park.
