This tiny playground is 0.15 acres and it is located in the Albany Park neighborhood (on Pulaski Road, ½ block south of Lawrence Avenue).
While there is no structured programming taking place at this location, we invite you to check out our great programs offered nearby at Mayfair Park.
In the years before the Great Chicago Fire, William H. Spikings, using bricks he made himself, built a substantial farmhouse at what would become the corner of Lawrence Avenue and Pulaski Road. The site of the area's original farmstead eventually became a street-car crossing and an important business location. In 1974, the Chicago Park District acquired the northwest corner of the intersection for park development. Called Louis Goldberg park for a brief period in 1975, it was renamed for Spikings Farm in 1998.
