History

Peterson Park honors Pehr Samuel Peterson (1830-1903), a pioneering nurseryman and prominent member of Chicago’s early Swedish community. Arriving in the United States in 1850, Peterson established a nursery on 500 acres of land near Pulaski Avenue and Peterson Street. Trees from the Peterson Nursery soon shaded many Chicago parks and boulevards, including Jackson Park, which was made lush and green for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Peterson was active in Swedish-American civic and religious groups. In fact, the King of Sweden knighted him for his accomplishments.

During the early 20th century, Tuberculosis became a significant health threat as a result of sanitation problems and Chicago’s rapid population growth.  Local officials responded by establishing a sanitarium at the outskirts of the city where patients could live and receive treatment in a country-like setting.  After the passage of the State and City Sanitarium Acts of 1909, a 160-acre plot of previous nursery land and some adjacent farmland at Bryn Mawr and Pulaski avenues was selected as the site for the sanitarium.  The Sanitarium’s Board of Directors hired landscape architect Ossian Cole Simonds (1855 – 1931) and architects Clark & Otis to plan the original facility.  When it first opened in 1915, the facility had 650 beds. Over the years, the sanitarium grew to serve 1,500 patients. It functioned as a city within a city with dormitories, children’s cottages, medical and research facilities, a maternity hospital, community gardens, a children’s school, dining halls, a chapel.  To provide a building for theatrical performances, large meetings, and gatherings, the Auditorium building was constructed in the early 1920s.  Architect Jarvis Hunt (1863 – 1941) designed the Classically-inspired red brick building. 

The Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium closed in the mid-1970s, and the Chicago Park District converted the old theater into the Peterson Park Gymnastics Center in the early 1990s.  Nearby, the old research laboratory was transformed into the Peterson Park Field House, and the old medical dispensary building became the North Park Village Nature Center.  Other Park District improvements included playgrounds, basketball and volleyball courts, and athletic fields.  The gymnastics center has offered year round gymnastic classes for over twenty years.

Description

The Peterson Park Gymnastic Center is located within North Park Village, just off of Peterson and Pulaski Avenues.The state-of-the-art gymnastics center, offers quality instruction for beginners to advanced competitors year-round.

Peterson Park honors Pehr Samuel Peterson (1830-1903), a pioneering nurseryman and prominent member of Chicago’s early Swedish community. Arriving in the United States in 1850, Peterson established a nursery on 500 acres of land near Pulaski Avenue and Peterson Street. Trees from the Peterson Nursery soon shaded many Chicago parks and boulevards, including Jackson Park, which was made lush and green for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Peterson was active in Swedish-American civic and religious groups. In fact, the King of Sweden knighted him for his accomplishments.

During the early 20th century, Tuberculosis became a significant health threat as a result of sanitation problems and Chicago’s rapid population growth.  Local officials responded by establishing a sanitarium at the outskirts of the city where patients could live and receive treatment in a country-like setting.  After the passage of the State and City Sanitarium Acts of 1909, a 160-acre plot of previous nursery land and some adjacent farmland at Bryn Mawr and Pulaski avenues was selected as the site for the sanitarium.  The Sanitarium’s Board of Directors hired landscape architect Ossian Cole Simonds (1855 – 1931) and architects Clark & Otis to plan the original facility.  When it first opened in 1915, the facility had 650 beds. Over the years, the sanitarium grew to serve 1,500 patients. It functioned as a city within a city with dormitories, children’s cottages, medical and research facilities, a maternity hospital, community gardens, a children’s school, dining halls, a chapel.  To provide a building for theatrical performances, large meetings, and gatherings, the Auditorium building was constructed in the early 1920s.  Architect Jarvis Hunt (1863 – 1941) designed the Classically-inspired red brick building. 

The Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium closed in the mid-1970s, and the Chicago Park District converted the old theater into the Peterson Park Gymnastics Center in the early 1990s.  Nearby, the old research laboratory was transformed into the Peterson Park Field House, and the old medical dispensary building became the North Park Village Nature Center.  Other Park District improvements included playgrounds, basketball and volleyball courts, and athletic fields.  The gymnastics center has offered year round gymnastic classes for over twenty years.
