Description

This small playground is located in the North Lawndale community. The 0.33 acre park features a basketball court and a playground that was renovated in Summer 2014 as part of the Chicago Plays! program. 

While there is no structured programming taking place at this location, we invite you to check out our great programs offered at nearby Douglas Park

History

Christiana Park is one of many small parks created by the Bureau of Parks and Recreation to meet the growing recreational demands of post-World War II Chicago. The Bureau acquired this .14-acre North Lawndale site in 1952, developing it as a playlot and transferring it to the Chicago Park District in 1959.

The park is named for adjacent Christiana Avenue. Christiana is the former name of Oslo, the capital of Norway. Around 1900, Chicago was said to be "the only city in the world with more Norwegians than Christiana."
