Located one block south of Peterson Avenue, just east of Nagle Avenue, Rosedale Park may only cover two and one-half acres, but it packs into its schedule sports, recreational, and leisure opportunities for all ages and interests.

One of Rosedale Park’s most popular programs is soccer. The park offers an outdoor soccer league for children ages 4-9. Other sports include basketball, flag football, track & field, seasonal sports, floor hockey, gymnastics, tumbling, cheerleading, and dodgeball. Children can also learn piano, arts & crafts, painting, knitting and fitness. The park serves a number of young preschoolers with classes such as tiny tot tumbling, music & movement, playgroup, arts, as well as moms, pops & tots (which involves parent participation). Adults can enjoy sewing and aerobics, throughout the year, plus we invite you to check out our popular senior club.

In addition to its fieldhouse with a gymnasium, Rosedale Park features a softball field,a junior-size soccer field, two basketball standards, two tennis courts, two playgrounds and a spraypool. If you're looking to host a birthday party or a small event the park clubroom is available for rentals. Check with the park for availability.

History

Rosedale Park was the creation of the Jefferson Park District, established in 1920 to provide neighborhood parks for its rapidly-developing northwest side community. The park district began to purchase land for Rosedale Park in 1930. By 1933, the district had issued contracts for site development, including an agreement to build a fieldhouse, one of three designed for the district by architect Clarence Hatzfeld. The following year, the park came under the control of the Chicago Park District when the Jefferson Park District and 21 other park commissions merged to form the new consolidated district. Rosedale Park takes its name from the avenue that runs along its southern border. The street was in turn named for Rosedale, Pennsylvania, the hometown of John Lewis Cochran (1857-1923), the developer of the Edgewater community along Chicago's lakeshore.
