Hidden Green: D’Angelo Park

For years we’d heard there was a pocket park near Sears Tower, but never came across it until recently.

D’Angelo Park is surrounded by freeway onramps, high bushes, and a tour bus staging area.  A plaque in the park reads:

OSCAR O. D’ANGELO PARK

This park is dedicated to lifelong near west side (Little Italy) resident Oscar O. D’Angelo for unselfish commitment, leadership and vision in the renaissance of his neighborhood, his city, and its parks.

RICHARD M. DALEY, Mayor.

October 24, 1990
