Located in the South Lawndale community, Shedd Park totals 1.13 acres and features a field house with a gymnasium and upstairs auditorium with a stage. Outside, the park offers basketball courts, a playground and an interactive water spray feature. Shedd Park's playground was renovated in Fall 2015 as part of Mayor Emanuel’s Chicago Plays! Program.
Park-goers can play basketball and table games at the facility. After school programs are offered throughout the school year, and in the summer youth attend the Park District’s popular six-week day camp.
In addition to programs, Shedd Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the whole family, such as holiday events and Movies in the Park.
