Track & Field Center at Gately Park

The Track & Field Center at Gately Park is a world-class track and field facility located in the Pullman community of Chicago. The 139,000-square foot facility features a hydraulically banked 200-meter track, a 4,000-square foot curtained warm-up area, eight sprint lanes, two long and triple jump runways and pits, pole-vault runway and pads, a high jump area, discus area, and scoreboard. The facility has a seating capacity of 3,500 and includes supporting amenities such as a meet management control room, concessions, multipurpose rooms, and locker rooms.

In addition to sporting events and programs, the facility has 70,000 square feet of usable event space, that can also be programmed for recreational basketball, volleyball and other non-sporting events. Basketball hoops and volleyball nets retract from the ceiling to provide 4 full court basketball courts and 6 full volleyball courts. The glass enclosed multi-purpose room overlooks the track and sports areas enabling it to be used for parties and during events to watch the activities.

Outside, the park offers a playground, softball/baseball diamonds, basketball courts, and Little League Baseball Stadium. Many of these spaces are available for rental including our ball fields. 

Updated Mask & Vaccine Policies

Effective February 28, 2022, face coverings will not be required for Park District patrons, with limited exceptions detailed below. Additionally, the vaccine requirement for park patrons will be lifted and patrons will no longer be required to provide proof of vaccination in order to use indoor park facilities. 

While face coverings are not required in most settings, we strongly recommend that individuals continue to wear face coverings if they are unvaccinated or immunocompromised, or if they are interacting with people that are unvaccinated, including children under the age of five.  

Masks will still be required during all transportation on buses or other vehicles. 
Many patrons and employees may choose to continue to wear a mask – please be kind to anyone that makes this choice. We fully support and encourage any patron or employee that makes the decision to continue wearing a mask.
