History

In response to the post-World War II baby boom, the city's Bureau of Parks and Recreation began creating dozens of new parks and playgrounds in the late 1940s. Among many sites acquired for park development was a two-and-a-half acre property in the McKinley Park neighborhood. Beginning construction by 1950, the city named the site Hoyne Park for the street on which it is located. Thomas Hoyne (1817-1883) was a lawyer who served as a judge, U.S. attorney, and U.S. Marshall. Elected mayor of Chicago in May of 1876, Hoyne served for only three months. Due to disputes about the validity of his election, the circuit court removed him from office in July of 1876. He was not re-elected.
