Amundsen Park Fieldhouse Transformation: Judge to Conduct Hearing on Chicago Migrant Shelter Plans

Residents on the Far West Side will go before a judge Tuesday morning to prevent their neighbourhood park and fieldhouse from being transformed into a migrant refuge.

Residents in Galewood have challenged the decision to accept new migrants at the Amundsen Park Fieldhouse.

The plan is now in limbo.

Residents claim that things changed last week.

The park now has only one employee and its operational hours have been curtailed.

Senior programmes have also been relocated, and exercise programmes have been cancelled.

Instead, ABC7 Chicago discovered some people working out outside the fieldhouse on Monday.

“I’m furious. I’m enraged. “This is a way for us seniors to express ourselves,” Laddie Gryphon explained.

The group is attempting to obtain a temporary restraining order to prevent Amundsen from becoming a refuge.

It will be heard by a Cook County judge at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.
