Pullman Community Center

Twelve acres of vacant land were transformed into the new Pullman Community Center – the 135,000 square foot, state-of-the-art, recreation and education complex – offering year-round indoor recreational and educational programs for people of all ages from the Pullman/Roseland communities and beyond. The new $20 million Community Center is the largest multi-sport complex in the region. It features three full-sized indoor turf playing fields for baseball, soccer, football and lacrosse, three hardwood courts for volleyball and basketball, batting cages, and classrooms and flexible space for community events and tournaments.

Sports programs offered include skills training and coaching, leagues and tournament play, and more. Some of the education programs being offered include — technology training; reading, writing and math skills tutoring; ACT exam prep; sports facility management certifications; and more.

Programming is led by the Chicago Park District and the Roseland Youth Center. Support for the Community Center comes from national and local businesses, major manufacturers and professional sports teams.

The Center has the capacity to host 1,200 teams, an estimated 50,000 participants, spectators and visitors, annually, as well as year-round athletic tournaments which will generate additional revenues for local businesses.  It has created 100, full-, part-time, and seasonal jobs and other economic, social and health benefits for the community.
