This park is located in the Logan Square community (on Damen Avenue, four blocks south of Armitage Avenue). It is 1.39 acres and contains a junior baseball field and a dog-friendly area.
The park is one of many access point to The 606 - the planned multi-use recreational trail being built along the elevated rail line along Bloomingdale Avenue (approximately 1800 North) from Ashland (1600 West) to Ridgeway (3732 West).
While there is no structured programming taking place at this location, we invite you to check out our great programs offered at nearby Holstein Park.
Around 1970, the Dana Civic Association began urging the Chicago Park District to acquire a privately owned lot, which was being used as a Little League ball field in the crowded Logan Square Community Area. Using U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant funds, the Park District acquired the property in 1973. The City passed an ordinance in 1976 for the closure of the right-of-way to adjacent Bloomingdale Avenue, and the property was incorporated into the park. The Park District upgraded the junior baseball field and installed permanent bleachers. In 1990, trees were planted to buffer the field from street traffic and a nearby elevated railroad track. The following year, the park was officially named Churchill Field Park at the request of the Near Northwest Neighborhood Network. The name makes reference to the property's former owner and to Churchill Street, which runs along the park's southern boundary. M.E. Churchill subdivided nearby property in the 1890’s.
