History

The Chicago Park District developed Linden Park in 1969, and improved it in the early 1990s. The park was one of a number of park district properties named for trees and plants in the mid-1970s. The district's park naming committee felt that neighborhood children could relate well to park names chosen from nature. The linden is a medium-sized to large tree found throughout the North American temperate zone. The many nutrients in the decaying leaves of lindens play an important role in building soil fertility. The linden's flowers provide nectar for bees, while the fruit, bark, and twigs serve as food for other wildlife. Native Americans twisted fibers from the tough inner bark into rope. They used finer linden bark threads to suture wounds and to weave cloth.
