Description

Privet Playlot Park is 0.16 acres and it is located in the Lincoln Park community (on Sheffield Avenue, one long block south of Armitage Avenue). While there is no structured programming taking place at this location, we invite you to check out our great programs offered at nearby Adams Playground Park.

History

The Chicago Park District purchased this once-vacant lot located in the Lincoln Park Community Area from Turtle Wax, Inc. in 1970, officially designating it Privet Park in 1974. This mini-park was one of a number of parks named for trees and plants at this time. Privets are shrubs or small trees grown primarily for their attractive foliage and white flowers. Although privets can be found in open woods and along roadsides, they are often trimmed to create formal, ornamental hedges. European in origin, privets belong to the olive family.
