About Clarendon Community Center Park (from Chicago Park District website – redacted)
Clarendon Community Center Park is located on 12.64 acres of land. Clarendon Community Center takes its name from the adjoining avenue, honoring English statesman Edward Hyde (1609-1674), first Earl of Clarendon. Clarendon began as a municipal beach.
During the 19th century, Lake Michigan was rarely used for swimming because of the heavily Lake. ed Chicago River flowed into it. Once the river was reversed in 1900 the Health Department began creating municipal beaches to provide the city with access to swimming, showers and changing facilities.
In 1908, the Park commission began planning a state-of-the-art facility for Clarendon. In 1916, the city opened the Clarendon Municipal Beach, featuring a brick building with two towers, locker areas for men and women, two smaller buildings housing a laundry, a children’s playroom and a promenade.
In the late 1930s, the Chicago Park District expanded Lincoln Park north to Foster Avenue, thereby eliminating Clarendon’s lake frontage. At that time, the city converted the facility into a community center. The Chicago Park District assumed ownership of the Clarendon Community Center in 1959. A major renovation project in 1972 resulted in the removal of the building’s most distinguishing features such as its tile roof and towers.
Clarendon Community Center Park is the home to the Garfield-Clarendon Model Railroad Club. We welcome visitors of all ages to stop by and enjoy. The Garfield-Clarendon Model Railroad Club has a rich history and beautifully crafted layout.
