Time Out says

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 was officially renamed in 2020 to honor Frederick and Anna Douglass, thanks to the efforts of a group of students at the Village Leadership Academy.
