Washington Park

Washington Park is a community area on the South Side of Chicago which includes the 372-acre park of the same name, stretching east-west from Cottage Grove Avenue to the Dan Ryan Expressway, and north-south from 51st Street to 63rd. It is home to the DuSable Museum of African American History. Washington Park is a social center of the South Side and hosts many festivals in the summer, including Chicago’s best organized cricket league and the terminus of the Bud Billiken Parade and Picnic. It is also the host of the annual UniverSoul Circus which comes to the park each fall (its first performance at the park was 1996). The largest 16″ softball league in Chicago is played there on Sundays (called “Sunday’s Best Softball League”).
