This 2/3 acre park is located in the Lakeview neighborhood (one block north of Diversey Parkway, three blocks east of Ashland Avenue). It contains a playslab with four basketball standards, a volleyball court, a water spray feature, and a playground. While there is no structured programming taking place at this location, we invite you to check out our great programs offered at nearby Hamlin Park.
In the mid-1960s, the South Lakeview Neighbors Association began to push for a playground in their crowded community. In 1966, the Chicago Park District agreed to create a new park at the corner of North Lakewood Avenue and West Wolfram Street. Using both city Park Improvement Bond funds and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant funds, the park district purchased the property two years later. Before long, the new park was equipped with basketball and volleyball courts, playground apparatus, a sand box, and a spray pool. In 1969, the park district recognized residents' efforts by naming the site South Lakeview Park. Subsequent improvements include a 1993 playground rehabilitation.
