Project Info

Ping Tom Memorial Park is a shining example of the transformation of vacant open space within the City of Chicago. Situated along the Chicago River near the 18th Street Bridge, the 7-acre historic railroad site was acquired by the Chicago Park District in 2002, and subsequently transformed into a vibrant anchor of the Chinese Community


There is a lot of love and emotion that went into creating this project.  It was incredibly important to tease that out during the interviews.
