History

Named for world-acclaimed Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), Mozart Park was the first of the Northwest Park District's thirteen parks. The park district was established in 1911, one of 22 park commissions consolidated into the Chicago Park District in 1934. The Northwest Park District aimed to provide one park for each of the ten square miles within its middle-class jurisdiction. After consulting with various community organizations, the park district chose a site for its first park and purchased the property in early 1914. That same year, the park district built a fieldhouse designed by Albert A. Schwartz, who went on to design other Northwest Park District facilities. In 1915, the park district board officially designated the site Mozart Park, based on a popular vote of local school children.
