Named for poet Paul Laurence Dunbar, Dunbar Park is a 20-acre regional park on the South Side of Chicago that was in need of updates for a growing neighborhood. Improvements include a renovated playground, a spray pool feature, an amphitheater, a plaza, both a sloped and passive reading lawn, and formal gardens. The central plaza features an inscription from Dunbar’s 1913 poem “Dreams” and a statue of the poet.
