Sherman Park is a sixty-acre park in the New City neighborhood of South Side, Chicago.
It was designed by renowned landscape architects John Charles Olmsted and Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., and celebrated Chicago architect Daniel Burnham. It opened in 1905.
The park was named for 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.
