Roughly a block near business district of Oak Park. Excellent for walking and relaxing. Park contains Pleasant- Home, historically and architecturally significant structure.

The park has installed new sculpture throughout the park this summer, 2016. My wife and I went to see it, and were impressed with the variety of sculpture displayed. I felt it was worth the time to go see them.

We enjoyed a quiet stroll through this park and walked the labyrinth for relaxation. Others enjoying the park were families and dog walkers. The Pleasant Home is also a sight to see.

Compact, pleasant area for a stroll and great squirrel watching! Oak Park is great for walking but we were happy to rest our feet on a bench for awhile.

One of the really nice parks in Oak Park. Just enough trees to have both shady spots and sunny spots, plenty of room for frisbee-playing, and there's the historical society in the middle. I came here twice during a weeklong period with my boyfriend, and...More
