Addams/Medill Park

1301 W. 14th ST.
Chicago, IL 60608
View in maps

The Chicago Park District established the much-needed park in 1946, part of a ten-year plan to increase recreational opportunities in under-served neighborhoods after World War II. The park’s name honors Jane Addams (1860-1935), the world-renowned social reformer who devoted her life to serving the economic and social needs of the Near West Side’s disadvantaged immigrant community. Addams’ base of operations was her Hull House on nearby Halsted Street, one of North America’s first settlement houses. In addition to her work in Chicago, Addams actively promoted national legal reforms, including tenement-house regulation, factory inspection, and workers’ compensation. Addams was awarded the 1931 Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts.
