Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks Virtual Tour 2020

DISCOVER Humboldt Park IN Humboldt Park

Initially landscaped by William Le Baron Jenney and later re-designed by renowned prairie landscape architect Jens Jensen, Humboldt Park totals 219 acres, and features an inland beach, historic lagoons, and boat house. Visitors come to Humboldt to enjoy baseball, soccer and tennis, fishing, and cultural events including the Latin Jazz Festival and the Puerto Rican Festival. The Humboldt Park stables near Paseo Boricua also houses The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture—the only museum in the country completely dedicated to the history of Puerto Rican culture.
