Sherman Park is a sixty-acre park in the New City neighborhood of Chicago. It was designed by Daniel Burnham, John Charles Olmsted, and Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., and opened in 1905. It takes its name from John B. Sherman, Burnham's father-in-law and a founder of Chicago's Union Stock Yards.
The park was designed specifically to enrich the immigrant, working class residents of the surrounding neighborhood.
