Winnemac Park, part of the school-park campus program, encompasses nearly 40 acres, including land owned by both the Chicago Public Schools and Chicago Park District. Bounded by Damen, Foster, Leavitt and Argyle, Winnemac Park offers programming and program registration in Amundsen High School, Chappell Elementary School and Winnemac Stadium.
In 2008 the park officially opened a new accessible playground for the community. The park was renovated in 1999 with $2 million in improvements including the addition of 200 trees, a scenic prairie garden and nature trail, three softball fields, a soccer field and new walkways, decorative lights and fencing.
Winnemac youth programs include basketball, bitty basketball, after-school drop-in, table fun and games, soccer, Cubs Care rookie baseball, and summer day camp. Also offered for adults are a fitness center, weightlifting, track & field, cross training, and walking. The park is popular with the Chicago United Runners and various community clubs that run the trails year round. If you are interested in our swimming programs associated with Winnemac Park, we invite you to view those opportunities listed under Amundsen School Park.
