History

The Chicago Park District purchased this once-vacant lot in 1970, with the help of funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Officially designated Ninebark Park in 1975, the playground was one of a number of parks named for trees and plants at this time. Ninebark is an ornamental shrub grown for its white flowers, attractive seed pods, and bright green foliage. As its long branches age, their bark becomes loose and separates in numerous thin layers. Primarily a North American plant, the hardy ninebark can be found along shorelines, rocky banks, and thickets.
