Description

Did you know that we are now offering programs at Senn Park?  We are in the school!  Check out our class offerings and sign-up today.

Located in the heart of Chicago’s Edgewater Community, Senn Park is 5.90 acres and it is fun place for people of all ages to spend a day playing in the park. Whether your hobby of choice is gardening, playing soccer, shooting hoops or stepping up to the plate for a game of baseball, you are bound to find the park bursting with activity. Young children and families enjoy the large ADA accessible playground and water spray feature.

With funding from Alderman Mary Ann Smith, the Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Park District enabled $1.5 million in improvements to the "triangle". This is the south portion of the park and "West Campus" area of Senn High School & Rickover Naval Academy, the area bounded by Ridge/Clark, Thorndale, and Ridgeview Ave.

History

Senn Park and the adjacent high school were named for Nicholas V. Senn, a prominent north side physician who conducted important medical research prior to his death in 1908. Although the park has existed only since 1947, its location has much earlier historic significance. It was originally the site of the Nicholas Kranz homestead and inn known as the Seven Mile House. According to the Kranz family, Abraham Lincoln attended a caucus of local farmers at the Seven Mile House during his 1860 campaign for the presidency. To honor this legacy, the city donated the Young Lincoln statue by sculptor Charles Keck to Senn Park in 1997.
