- This park is named after the magical land of Oz, created by L. Frank Baum. The children's author was a Lincoln Park resident in the 1890s.
- Sculptures of Dorothy, Tin Man & Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz greet you here. People there didn't seem to know there is also the Cowardly Lion. Hard to find...he's hiding in a corner behind a tree
- They come to life after midnight on a full moon!
- Oz Park is nominated for Best Playground in our Hipsqueak Awards, vote now at timeoutchicagokids.com/awards!
- Nice big park. Great playground too!
- This is my kid's favorite park in Chicago! They love to play hide and seek in the wooden two level open labyrinths of paths.
- Find the Wizard of Oz statues.
- Pickup softball every Sunday 9-11AM from April-Oct as long as the temp is 50 degrees by 8AM. 12" co-ed. We have players of all ages. Come and join us!
- Sit in grass
- They planted new grass in Fall of 2018 so it should be gorgeous by Summer 2019.
- Very nice park!
- Nice park. Good for families with small kids, people who like to play sports, to bring your dog, and for people who like the Wizard of Oz.
- Great park in Lincoln Park
- Really nice place to play baseball, basket... or just relax.
- The park is pretty huge and great for sporting, but its main attractions are the statues of Dorothy, Toto, and the rest of the gang. I don't recall a yellow-brick road, sadly.
- Yes you better go find every Wizard of Oz statue. #donteventhinkaboutit
- My kids' favorite playground in Chicago.
- Take a trip 2 the land of Oz in this "Wizard of Oz" themed park. :-D
- Great fun park for the kids but no restrooms close by so stay away from trees if you get my meaning.
