Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks Virtual Tour 2020

DISCOVER Tuley Park IN Chatham

Tuley Park

Tuley Park’s origins trace back to the early 1900s, with finalized construction taking place during Chicago’s Roaring Twenties. Known for its Spanish-Revival style fieldhouse, the park also offers a community garden, a new playground with an interactive pool, baseball diamonds, tennis courts, and a gazebo. Tuley has been a stop on the Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks tour every summer since 2012. The surrounding Chatham neighborhood has a vibrant cultural scene, with a focus on music, spirituality, and writing, and has once been home to legendary artists including Mahalia Jackson, Lorraine Hansberry (author of A Raisin in the Sun), and Chance the Rapper.
