The Chicago Park District manages an extensive system of urban park lands and facilities, including field houses and numerous works of public art, including sculptures, murals, and fountains. CPD's Department of Planning and Construction houses archival records dating back to the beginnings of coordinated public land management in Chicago and documenting the origins and history of many of the artworks under its jurisdiction. No finding aids or other records are currently available. Some of the historical records are being transferred to the Chicago Public Library's Harold Washington Library Center, where information about and access to them will be greatly enhanced. Records in this web resource were compiled from information supplied by the archivist and from in-person examination of materials.
