The park's name pays tribute to the Calumet region, which encompasses numerous south side community areas and comprises the basin of the Calumet River. The name Calumet comes from the Norman-French word for pipe, "chamulet." Early French explorers who traded with local Native Americans used the term in reference to their "peace pipes."
This park offers facilities for baseball, boxing, and gymnastics, as well as a gym, meeting rooms, walking/bicycling paths, and tennis courts.
