Walsh Park Is Going Under Construction!
Walsh Park is located at 1722 North Ashland Avenue and serves as the eastern end of the Bloomingdale Trail, the heart of The 606. In 2014, The Chicago Park District received the Open Space and Land Acquisition Grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to support improvements that will provide a family friendly space that supports both the active recreation (athletic field, playground, etc.) and passive recreation (natural grass, trees, and community gardens). The design for Walsh Park includes a playground with a spray feature, outdoor fitness equipment, a gathering space, pathway, landscaping, and lighting improvements.
The south end of Walsh Park is scheduled to be closed from April to October. The Dog Friendly Area will remain opened, as will access to the Bloomingdale Trail. Keep an eye on our social media for updates or for more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
