The original location of West Side Park II has the UofI Medical Center & Stroger Hospital there, but the area is right on the Eisenhower Expressway.

A few miles to the north is the United Center. A new West Side Park could be built up there and share some of the massive parking areas.
Ick. That neck of the woods is pretty ugly -- the only open space nearby that I can think of Addams Park, and residents would raise holy hell about the construction, and then they'd raise even more hell about the traffic.

Arlington Park is going broke. Buy the property out there, bulldoze it and develop a nice stadium with placement by an interstate.
