Located in the Oakland Community, Kennicott Park totals 2.52 acres and features a field house—the former Judd Elementary School, a gymnasium, fitness center, kitchen, dance studio and meeting rooms. Outside, the park offers a playground and small athletic field. [outdoor facilities].

Many of these spaces are available for rental. Kennicott Park is the site for several community based partnerships that provide programs for children and adults in the community.

Park-goers can play basketball and table games at the facility. 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 include cooking programs and doll camp.

In addition to programs, Kennicott Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the whole family, such as Movies in the Park at nearby Gwendolyn Brooks Park and Halloween activities.

History

Kennicott Park came into being in 1990, when the Board of Education transferred Judd Elementary School to the Chicago Park District. The park district now operates the former school building in partnership with other city agencies and non-profit organizations, providing a wide array of programs and services to the previously under-served Kenwood neighborhood. Kenwood was founded in 1856 by Dr. Jonathan A. Kennicott (1824-1893), from whom the park takes its name. A native New Yorker, Kennicott graduated from Chicago's Rush Medical College in 1843, and practiced dentistry in Milwaukee for several years before returning to Chicago. Kennicott's estate, named Kenwood for his mother's birthplace in Scotland, stood on Dorchester Street at 48th Street. The fashionable Kenwood community soon became known as the "Lake Forest of the South Side."

Description

Located in the Oakland Community, Kennicott Park totals 2.52 acres and features a field house—the former Judd Elementary School, a gymnasium, fitness center, kitchen, dance studio and meeting rooms. Outside, the park offers a playground and small athletic field. [outdoor facilities].

Many of these spaces are available for rental. Kennicott Park is the site for several community based partnerships that provide programs for children and adults in the community.

Park-goers can play basketball and table games at the facility. 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 include cooking programs and doll camp.

In addition to programs, Kennicott Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the whole family, such as Movies in the Park at nearby Gwendolyn Brooks Park and Halloween activities.

Kennicott Park came into being in 1990, when the Board of Education transferred Judd Elementary School to the Chicago Park District. The park district now operates the former school building in partnership with other city agencies and non-profit organizations, providing a wide array of programs and services to the previously under-served Kenwood neighborhood. Kenwood was founded in 1856 by Dr. Jonathan A. Kennicott (1824-1893), from whom the park takes its name. A native New Yorker, Kennicott graduated from Chicago's Rush Medical College in 1843, and practiced dentistry in Milwaukee for several years before returning to Chicago. Kennicott's estate, named Kenwood for his mother's birthplace in Scotland, stood on Dorchester Street at 48th Street. The fashionable Kenwood community soon became known as the "Lake Forest of the South Side."
