Time Out says

Named for Nobel Peace Prize-winning social reformer and Hull House founder Jane Addams as well as the Medill Elementary School that was once located to the east of the park, Addams/Medill is a nine-acre oasis on Chicago's Near West Side. The site will soon host the 100,000 square foot Exelon Student Recreation Center, outfitted with an indoor track, artificial turf field and basketball courts. Addams/Medill was the most recent home of the Spring Awakening Music Festival, but the park's latest improvements forced the annual EDM event to find a new venue.
