This picturesque 1.78 acre park has both a gazebo and a playground. It is located in the O’Hare community (one block west of Cumberland Avenue, approximately five blocks north of Foster Avenue). While there is no structured programming taking place at this location, we invite you to check out our great programs at nearby Oriole Park.
The Richmond Joint Venture donated this park site near O'Hare Airport to the Chicago Park District in 1989. At the request of the community, the park district officially designated the site Grandparents Park in 1998. Shortly after the park's creation, a neighborhood advisory group suggested the name, and, ever since, the park has been known as Grandparents Park by neighborhood residents. The advisory group believed that the new playlot's most frequent users would be grandparents and their visiting grandchildren, who would need more room to play than is generally available in the neighborhood's small yards.
