Bowen Park Gazebo

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 22 June 2015 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Gazebo located in a portion of the formal gardens of Bowen Park in Waukegan, Illinois. Bowen Park originally had its beginnings in 1912 as the Joseph T. Bowen Country Club, which served as a summer camp for children and their families from Chicago's crowded Near West Side neighborhood. The camp was owned and operated by Hull-House, the Chicago settlement house founded by Jane Addams. The Bowen Country Club provided a summer outing to Chicago's children until 1962 when the property was sold to the Waukegan Park District.
