Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks Virtual Tour 2020


Nestled along Milwaukee Avenue, Frank J. Wilson Park is a small but highly active park in the Portage Park community. Since the fieldhouse was renovated in 1934, the building has accommodated a wide variety of community activities including lectures, movies, theater productions, club meetings, ping pong, tumbling, wrestling, and dancing. Significant recent improvements to the park include a soft-surface playground, a sand volleyball court, and an interactive waterplay area. Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks has brought a performance to Wilson every summer for the last eight years.
