Located in the Chicago Lawn community, Tarkington Park features a multi-purpose room and gymnasium. Many of these spaces are available for rental including our multi-purpose room and gymnasium. Tarkington Park is located in Tarkington School of Excellence, a CPS green school.

Park-goers can participate in Park Kids, seasonal sports, jewelry making, tumbling, arts & crafts, and kids fitness. After school programs are offered throughout the school year, and during the summer, youth can participate in the Park District’s popular six-week day camp.

In addition to programs, Tarkington Park hosts fun special events throughout the year for the entire family, such as holiday–themed events.
