Located in the North Lawndale Community Area, Homan Square totals 5.18 acres. The Homan Square Community Center Campus was completed in December 2001. It is a comprehensive recreation, health, family and education center that is home to some of the finest non-profit service providers in Chicago. Homan Square Park offers great recreation facilities, among them an Olympic size indoor swimming pool; state-of-the-art fitness center, gymnasium, a kitchen and several meeting rooms that host senior activities and game room fun. With limited green space, outside the rolling lawn space features a children’s playground.

Many of these spaces are available for rental, especially the patio for wedding receptions.

Park-goers can play basketball, volleyball and go swimming at the facility. On the cultural side, Homan Square Park offers dance programs. After school programs are offered throughout the school year, and in the summer youth attend the Park District’s popular six-week day camp.

In addition to programs, Homan Square Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the whole family, such as UMOJA Black History Month celebration.

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 development, a vibrant mixed-income community.  The Homan Square community includes housing, two schools, a medical facility, and a 5-acre Chicago Park District facility that opened in 2001.  Homan Square Park has an indoor Olympic-size pool, gymnasium, fitness center, ten club rooms and an outdoor playground.

Description

Located in the North Lawndale Community Area, Homan Square totals 5.18 acres. The Homan Square Community Center Campus was completed in December 2001. It is a comprehensive recreation, health, family and education center that is home to some of the finest non-profit service providers in Chicago. Homan Square Park offers great recreation facilities, among them an Olympic size indoor swimming pool; state-of-the-art fitness center, gymnasium, a kitchen and several meeting rooms that host senior activities and game room fun. With limited green space, outside the rolling lawn space features a children’s playground.

Many of these spaces are available for rental, especially the patio for wedding receptions.

Park-goers can play basketball, volleyball and go swimming at the facility. On the cultural side, Homan Square Park offers dance programs. After school programs are offered throughout the school year, and in the summer youth attend the Park District’s popular six-week day camp.

In addition to programs, Homan Square Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the whole family, such as UMOJA Black History Month celebration.

 

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 development, a vibrant mixed-income community.  The Homan Square community includes housing, two schools, a medical facility, and a 5-acre Chicago Park District facility that opened in 2001.  Homan Square Park has an indoor Olympic-size pool, gymnasium, fitness center, ten club rooms and an outdoor playground.
