A quiet oasis and well-loved community
by site design group, ltd.
Seneca Park is a quiet oasis and well-loved community amenity that is immersed in Chicago history and sits at the crossroads of art, nature, culture, health, and community in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood. The design was developed through an in-depth community outreach process that started with the need for an update to this valued community space. The site previously contained outdated post and platform structures with mulch on the ground layer. The new design envisions a functional, flexible, and updated amenity for surrounding residents, patrons of the nearby Museum of Contemporary Art, and staff, patients, and visitors of the Lurie Children's Hospital and Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
The landscape architecture firm on the project, site design group, ltd., led the design process for the entire one-acre park, which includes plans for a sensory garden that serves as a shady nook for rest and reflection, a sunny lawn that promotes gathering, an all???(C)e passageway that provides an important connection to the adjacent community, and additional space for gathering, events, and activities, as well as the custom playground which was the center of Phase 1 of the project.
The expansive playground, provided by Landscape Structures, accommodates children of all ages with two distinct play spaces separated by age group; 2 to 5 years and 5 to 12 years. The playground promotes creative, non-linear play and provides fully accessible play opportunities for children through completely custom-designed play equipment with two overarching themes: Dunes (ages 2 to 5) and the City (ages 5 to 12).
