The Springfield Park District in Springfield, IL has decided to rename Douglas Park due to the name being associated to the late Sen. Stephen Douglas. Stephen Douglas became a senator in the late 1840's, where he remained until his death in 1861 . Monuments and other properties that share his name and/or likeness in Illinois  have been under review because of Douglas' connections and profiting off of slavery. The Springfield Park District voted 7-0 in favor of the change on Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2020. In the past month, officials at the Illinois State Capitol building, have also decided to take down the Stephen Douglas statue that currently resides on the east side of the building on the capital grounds. The removal process of the statue is already underway, but the renaming of the park is to be determined. This photo was taken on Sunday, Apr. 5, 2020 in Springfield, IL.
