Park District Commissioner Richard Marcus feels the district should ask residents for ideas about a new name for the new park. The land was named by the Sisters of Christian Charity, the Roman Catholic order of women that formerly owned it. The order was founded in 1849 by Pauline von Mallinckrodt, a wealthy German who was moved by the poverty of the Industrial Revolutions. The Wilmette Park is the remnant of 35 acres of the former hamlet of Gross Point that a Milwaukee Franciscan order sold in 1912 to the Sisters of Christian Charity.
