ABOUT THE PARK
Washington Park Playfield is located in the Washington Park Arboretum.Acreage:
By 1909 a baseball field had been established on a fill across the ravine, the sloping sides of which formed natural bleachers for the popular sport. The field was expanded with additional filling in 1929 (including Madison Street bridge area) and a shelterhouse was built. (Original Arboretum plans were to develop a rose garden in the playfield area but community protest resulted in a modification of the Arboretum Agreement.)
