Tips

  • 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!

  • 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.
