Located in the North Lawndale community and parts of the area known as Pilsen, Douglass Park Cultural & Community Center totals 218 acres. Douglass is a historic regional park that offers many recreational and cultural opportunities for park patrons. The field house features include two gymnasiums, an auditorium, computer lab, fitness center, a kitchen, a grand ball room and meeting rooms. Outdoors, the park offers tennis courts, a game day football stadium, outdoor pool, water spray features, basketball courts, an artificial turf soccer field, a pavilion, baseball fields and a small golf putting range. Douglass Park also offers two newly renovated playgrounds as part of Mayor Emanuel’s Chicago Plays! Program. In summer 2016, a playground on the west end of the park was renovated and renamed Sunshine Daydream Playground, in honor of a Grateful Dead song. This new playlot offers an interactive water fountain and music-themed play equipment that is accessible for children of all ages and abilities. Douglass Park has partnered with many community partners to add additional amenities for patrons. Through a collaboration with the Chicago Bulls Basketball organization, the park offers a computer learning lab to serve the children of the community. In partnership with Ravinia, the park is host to a series of summer concerts and the annual Junta Hispana festival in July. Young park-goers can play seasonal sports at park facilities or take part in cultural programs, including dance, art, performing arts and theater. In the summer, youth attend day camp and specialty arts camps. Adults participate in a range of activities at Douglass Park, including working out at the fitness center or engaging in aerobics and conditioning. Families also participate in the monthly “Bring the Family to the Table” nutritional meal, a free program offered in partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository. In addition to programs, Douglass Park hosts fun special events for the whole family, such as Movies in the Park and other Night Out in the Parks events. Parking/Directions
