Known by locals as "Mount Bridgeport," the site of Palmisano Park was formerly a limestone quarry (called Stearns Quarry) that opened in 1836. When the quarry was shut down in 1970, the 380 foot deep hole was used as a dumping site for construction waste until the city stepped in and decided to turn the area into a park. Today, the old quarry contains a fishing pond, while wetlands, running paths and an athletic field surround a small hill that provides wonderful views of the park and the Chicago skyline.
