Since 1916

Bloomingdale Park is located at the intersection of Sherman Boulevard & Wells Street. For more detailed location information, check out the General Park Map or Park Map 

History:The land was acquired in 1916 by the Board of Park Commissioners. A replacement for the Wells Street Bridge was proposed in 1978 that would alter the 10 acres of land. Many opposed the new bridge; however it did offer a continuous Rivergreenway park system that would connect the land hopefully in the future by a bike trail.  In the 1980’s the land was developed and used for recreational purposes which would include the Bloomingdale Recreation Council. This council was a part of the Bloomingdale’s Neighborhood services which offered those in the neighborhood living and social services. A summer program in the park was developed during the early 1980’s.
