Parks and Maps


Oak Brook Park District provides many opportunities for members of the community to take recreation outside! Many of the amenities in Central Park are free to use, and are open 7 days a week from dawn until dusk. It’s a great way to help improve your health, reconnect with nature, and enjoy the fresh air!


Playgrounds


Check out one of the four playground areas located in Central Park! The varied structures are suitable for any child. The large playground area by the Family Recreation Center features a tree-inspired theme and a boat theme. The playgrounds near the baseball fields and Central Park West offer a chance for smaller children to get out and play amongst shady trees. All playgrounds are on a rubberized or mulched surface. Playground areas are also available at Chillem, Forest Glen, and Saddle brook parks.


Basketball Courts/Horseshoe Pits


Located next to Central Park West, the basketball courts feature two outdoor, full-court setups on a dedicated asphalt pad striped for basketball. Immediately north of the courts are the horseshoe pits. The pits are sand-filled and include wooden backstops. Give this old game a new chance! (Individuals must supply horseshoes).


Fishing Pier


Try your hand at fishing, or simply relax and take in the view of Ginger Creek. The ADA accessible pier features wood decking and a bench, offering a great place to watch geese, herons, songbirds, and ducks. You may also enjoy the natural flora along the shore of Ginger Creek, part of the shoreline restoration project.


Sand Volleyball Courts/Community Ice Rink


In the summer, the sand volleyball courts feature three nets which allows for several groups to play at a time. During the winter, the sand is changed into the Community Ice Rink, featuring benches and lighting, so you can skate even on short winter days. The ice is even lit from below! Seasonal open/closed information for the ice rink is available at www.obparks.org.


Disc Golf


Winding through the trees of Central Park is our 9-hole Disk golf course. Played much like traditional golf, disc golf uses special frisbee-like discs to score points. Play up and down the wooded, gently hilly course featuring 19 different tees and a challenging pond element. This game is perfect for anyone who can throw a disc - the whole family can have fun! Course is free to use. If you require discs, the Family Recreation Center has discs available for rental. Please see the disc golf page for rental and other Disc Golf information.


Outdoor Walking Paths and Oak Brook Bike Route


Whether you are walking, running, or biking on the Oak Brook bike route, you will stay healthy and fit year-round. The 15-mile path winds through scenic Central Park, as well as many of the Oak Brook residential subdivisions. A bike route map is available for download at www.obparks.org/downloads/bike_paths.pdf
