Jackson Park for All

Let’s turn “Jackson” Park golf course into a free public green space.

1 minute

Two new light rail stations will be opening next to "Jackson" Park Golf Course in the next couple of years. The 148th St. station is set to open in 2024, and the 130th St. station in 2026.

Right now is our best chance to:

  • Rename the park, which is currently named after a genocidal tyrant and slaveowner,
  • Turn it into a free public green space with amenities that better serve the neighborhood and the environment,
  • And build more surrounding housing so that more neighbors can enjoy it and access the new light rail stations.
