Columbus Park (Austin Park)

Jensen drawings of plans for Columbus Park. © Copyrights reserved to Chicago Park District. Jensen considered his 1916-18 design for Columbus Park one of his greatest achievements. He wrote that it was as “complete” an “interpretation of the Native Landscape of Illinois as anything" he had ever done. The project represented Jensen's first and only opportunity to design an entirely new large park for the citizens of Chicago. His vision for the 140-acre park was inspired by the site’s natural history and topography.
