The Friends of West Edgewater Park’s crusade to convert the former site of the Edgewater Medical Center located at 5700 N Ashland into a park was featured in this article in the Chicago Tribune: Park advocates want abandoned hospital site. Residents in the area are lobbying for at least a portion of the site to be turned into a park, as the area is landlocked and the nearest park is a 20-30 minute walk. The land was valued at over $5M and the cost of demolishing the building is estimated to be over $6M.
