Description

Located in the Woodlawn neighborhood, Moccasin Ranch Park is an idyllic recreational location for families to spend a portion of their day relaxing, enjoying nature and the outdoors. This park is 0.20 acres and it contains a playground with swings, slides, and climbing elements.

History

The Chicago Park District acquired this once-vacant lot for recreational use in 1969, and officially named it Moccasin Ranch in 1998. The Moccasin Ranch is a collection of stories about life in the Mississippi Valley penned by Hamlin Garland (1860-1940), a significant figure in the Chicago Literary Movement. After gaining initial fame through Moccasin Ranch, Garland published more than a dozen novels, many of which focused on the Midwest. Garland, who lived near the park site at 6427 South Greenwood, is now regarded as one of Chicago's most important authors.
