Originally named Oakwood Park, this property was acquired in thirds: one-third purchased in 1976, one-third donated to the District in 1976 and the remaining third was deeded to the District by Village Hall in 1986. In 1996, construction began on an enclosed pavilion to house winter programs and summer camps. Upon the pavilion’s completion in 1997, it was dedicated and named for Carl P. Hartmann, retired Park District Director. At the same time, the park was also re-named Hartmann Park.

The fall of 2000 brought about a total park renovation, which included most of the amenities listed above, as well as landscape improvements.

The headquarters for the Special Recreation Association of Central Lake County (SRACLC) is also located on this parcel, at 290 Oakwood Drive.
