The South Shore Cultural Center, a 65-acre park with a golf course, a bathing beach, and an impressive building, originated as the South Shore Country Club. Located in the South Shore community, South Shore Cultural Center has been recognized as a Chicago Landmark (2004) and is also listed on the National Register (1975). This cultural haven was founded in 1905 and later rebuilt in 1916. Bought by the Chicago Park District in 1975, this historic building was restored as a historic landmark after a massive community campaign led by the Chicago Park District and historic preservationists.

  • A gem on the south side of Chicago. I call it My Estate. Love everything and more. Lakeside is wonderful. Golf you bet! Events and children programs are super nice. Thumbs up!!!!
  • One of those places that is unassuming from the outside , but is a place to enjoy the open space, the charming architecture and feel the history of the place. The place has elegance and Grace, but you also notice how some parts feel old. Like the older carpet, the older looking windows and doors.
