La Follette Park Rehabilitation

1333 North Laramie Avenue

Located in the Austin community, La Follette Park is home to a large fieldhouse with an indoor pool, gymnasium, a fitness center, an auditorium and two kitchens. The Italian Renaissance-Revival style building was designed by architects Michaelsen and Rognstad, who are also responsible for the Austin Town Hall and fieldhouses in Garfield, Humboldt and Douglas Parks.

Outside, the 18-acre park offers basketball courts, baseball fields, tennis courts, an artificial turf athletic field for football or soccer, a pavilion, two playgrounds and an interactive water spray feature.

PBC’s work at La Follette Park includes exterior repairs to the fieldhouse’s chimney, roofs, and windows, as well as masonry restoration and stone repointing. Inside, the locker room will get new flooring and plaster throughout the building will be repaired as needed.

This project is part of Chicago Park District’s “Save Chicago’s Treasures” initiative. View other Group A projects here.
