Archer Park Facility Rehabilitation

4901 South Kilbourn Avenue

Archer Park’s 14 acres are home to a gymnasium, kitchen, and fitness center. Outside, the park offers baseball fields, a basketball court, an athletic field for football and soccer, a horseshoe area and a playground.

The Chicago Park District created Archer Park in the late 1940s to provide green space in an area then experiencing significant industrial development. The new park was part of a ten-year, district-wide program to increase recreational opportunities in underserved neighborhoods in post-World War II Chicago. Archer Park provided solely outdoor recreational facilities until 1970, when the park district constructed a small fieldhouse.

PBC’s work at Archer Park comprises repairs to this fieldhouse, including roof replacement, new gutters and soffits, and exterior repairs.

This project is part of Chicago Park District’s “Save Chicago’s Treasures” initiative. View other Group B projects here.
