Around the same time Humboldt Park was being built, Douglas Park (named for Stephen A. Douglas, a United States Senator who helped bring the Illinois Central Railroad to Chicago) was also in the works. Unsurprisingly so, the Douglas Park Cultural & Community Center is almost an exact replica of Humboldt Park Field House. The historic Field House contains many event spaces with terrazzo flooring and grand intricately designed plaster ceilings. A guest favorite is cocktails on the veranda overlooking the lagoon. Outside, Douglas Park contains gardens, the “Flower Hall”, a formal reflecting pool, swimming pool, lily pools, and acres of breathtaking landscaping. With both indoor and outdoor options, Douglas Park is the perfect setting for receptions, cotillions, and informal affairs.
