This expansive North Lawndale park features gymnasiums, tennis courts, a football stadium, outdoor pool, basketball courts, an artificial turf soccer field, baseball fields and a small golf putting range. Designed at the same time as Humboldt and Garfield parks, the outdoor facility is named for Illinois Senator Stephen A. Douglas, who famously lost the 1860 presidential election to some guy named Abraham Lincoln.
