History

The Chicago Park District purchased this property in 1974, at the urging of the Logan Square Neighborhood Association, which saw the need for a neighborhood "tot-lot" to supplement facilities at Haas Playground, just 4.5 blocks to the southeast. No playground equipment was ever installed. Instead, local residents developed the lot as a community garden, with the help of NeighborSpace Corporation and the Chicago Botanic Garden. In 1999, the park district officially designated the site Neighbors' Garden Park, the name used by the gardeners themselves.
