Chicago Women's Park information
Fronting on Prairie Ave, with the Glessner House to the north and the Clarke House to the west, this 4-acre park has a French garden, a fountain and winding paths. It also has a notorious past. The Fort Dearborn battle, in which a group of local Native Americans rebelled against the incursion of white settlers, is thought to have occurred on this very spot on August 15, 1812.
