A Park Reborn in Chicago's Chinatown

A Park Reborn in Chicago's Chinatown

In the 1960s, a new highway in Chicago wiped out a Chinatown’s only park, leaving generations of neighborhood children without meaningful access to green space and nature. That changed in 1999 when Ping Tom Park was created, giving young and old a place to find nature and inspiration. Now, The Nature Conservancy and the Chicago Park District are teaming up with residents in Chinatown to keep this park vibrant and vital.
