Located at Lunt and Damen Avenues in the Rogers Park community, Paschen Park is a great little place to enjoy holiday and special events, such as summer fest, unity day, concerts in the parks and movie night. The park’s playground with sandbox attracts many families, and teens and children use the four outdoor basketball standards and volleyball court. During the school year, Paschen Park offers an after-school program for ages 6-12 that combines drama, arts & crafts, gymnastics, sports, game room and homework hour. Participants enjoy using three new computers generously donated by a member of the Lunt Neighbors Association.

The park’s pre-teen club also uses the computers for their needs. Youth can experience cultural programs at Paschen Park, including arts and crafts, play production and dance such as hip-hop, tap, and jazz. Or, they may participate in track and field, floor hockey, recreational tumbling, co-recreational volleyball, basketball and, in the summer, day camp. Smaller children join in preschool classes or moms, pops & tots where adults also participate. For adults, Paschen Park offers basketball.

History

In 1929, the City of Chicago began leasing less than an acre of land from the Board of Education to create a small park in the Rogers Park community, which was experiencing significant growth. The city installed playground equipment and a center playfield, which was flooded for ice-skating in the winter. A small one-story brick building also was constructed. This office and bathroom building was flanked by open brick structures sheltering boys' and girls' sand courts. In 1947, the city enlarged the building by enclosing the brick shelters. The Board of Education transferred Paschen Park to the Chicago Park District in 1990. The city named this park in honor Christian P. Paschen (1884-1954), who served as Commissioner of Buildings from 1927 to 1931. Paschen, owner of one of Chicago's oldest and largest companies, Paschen Construction, was involved in various philanthropic efforts.
