In 1990, the Dearborn Park Corporation donated this park site in its ambitious residential development to the Chicago Park District. The park district named it Cotton Tail Park in 1998 at the request of the Dearborn Park Landscape Committee. This local residents' group championed the new name because the park is filled with cotton-tailed rabbits that neighborhood children love to chase.
This small playground is located in the Near South Community. The park features a playround, sandbox, and walking trail. It is an active community park.
While there is no structured programming taking place at this location, we invite you to check out our great programs offered at nearby Daley Bicentennial Park for recreation and get in shape at the Fitness Center.
