Homan Park is one of many small parks created by the Bureau of Parks and Recreation to meet the growing recreational demands of post-World War II Chicago. The city identified this .17-acre site along South Homan Avenue in the South Lawndale neighborhood in 1948. Using Playground Bond Funds, the bureau acquired the property and installed a spray pool, a sand box, and playground equipment before 1950. Following its practice of the time, the city named the park for the adjacent street. Homan Avenue honors Joseph Homan, a prolific builder and contractor whose company, Homan and Brown, constructed homes throughout Chicago between 1873 and 1888. The city transferred Homan Park to the Chicago Park District in 1959.
