Located in the North Lawndale community, Homan Square totals 5.18 acres and is part of the Homan Square Community Center campus. The campus was completed in December 2001 and serves as a recreation, health, family and education center that is home to many nonprofit service providers.

Homan Square Park offers community recreation facilities including an Olympic-size indoor swimming pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a gymnasium, a kitchen and several meeting rooms that host games and other activities for seniors and children. Outside, the park's rolling lawn space includes a scenic pation and a children’s playground.

Many of these spaces are available for rental, including the patio, which is popular for wedding receptions.

Park-goers come to Homan Square Park to play basketball and volleyball or to go swimming in the indoor pool. On the cultural side, Homan Square Park offers popular dance programs and camps for children. After school programs are offered throughout the school year, and in the summer youth attend the Park District’s six-week day camp.

In addition to programs, Homan Square Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the whole family, including the popular UMOJA Black History Month Celebration and other Night Out in the Parks special events.

History

In the late 1980s, after the old Sears Headquarters had been closed down and its vast facilities had remained largely vacant for many years, developer Charles Shaw began efforts to transform the North Lawndale site into the Homan Square Community Center, a vibrant mixed-income community. 

Today, Homan Square Community Center includes housing, two schools, a medical facility, and a 5-acre Chicago Park District facility that opened in 2001.

Description

Located in the North Lawndale community, Homan Square totals 5.18 acres and is part of the Homan Square Community Center campus. The campus was completed in December 2001 and serves as a recreation, health, family and education center that is home to many nonprofit service providers.

Homan Square Park offers community recreation facilities including an Olympic-size indoor swimming pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a gymnasium, a kitchen and several meeting rooms that host games and other activities for seniors and children. Outside, the park's rolling lawn space includes a scenic pation and a children’s playground.

Many of these spaces are available for rental, including the patio, which is popular for wedding receptions.

Park-goers come to Homan Square Park to play basketball and volleyball or to go swimming in the indoor pool. On the cultural side, Homan Square Park offers popular dance programs and camps for children. After school programs are offered throughout the school year, and in the summer youth attend the Park District’s six-week day camp.

In addition to programs, Homan Square Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the whole family, including the popular UMOJA Black History Month Celebration and other Night Out in the Parks special events.

In the late 1980s, after the old Sears Headquarters had been closed down and its vast facilities had remained largely vacant for many years, developer Charles Shaw began efforts to transform the North Lawndale site into the Homan Square Community Center, a vibrant mixed-income community. 

Today, Homan Square Community Center includes housing, two schools, a medical facility, and a 5-acre Chicago Park District facility that opened in 2001.
