Bucktown has nine great parks:

Holstein Park

Holstein Park has been the center point for the Bucktown community since homes were built here in 1854.  The area was named after early residents, laborers and craftsman from Schleswig-Holstein, a region of Germany.

The land was transferred to the West Chicago Park System in 1901.  The historic field house, designed by Illinois State architect William Carbys Zimmerman, opened to the public in 1912, and was soon joined by the formal playing fields and a public pool.
Holstein Park was incorporated into a unified Chicago Park District in 1934.  When the nearby Logan School burned down, the adjoining property to the north was added and renamed Senior Citizen Park in 1979.
Holstein Park remains the center of community for Bucktown residents who come to use the field house, swimming pool and since 2006 the newly renovated children’s playground.
