Location:The park existed on the land now occupied by the Forest Park "el" station on the Blue Line and the Eisenhower Expressway.
History:Prohibition in 1920 closed the park's Beer Garden causing a drop in attendance.  This was followed by a fire in 1922 which destroyed a great deal of the park.  The park never reopened.
