I live in Orland Park, so surprise there are a lot of parks to choose from.
Before I lived here I would have told you that the park stinks.
My previous location didn’t understand what a park actually should be. I was picturing just a bit of grass and flowers. I didn’t realize that parks typically offer lots of fun, athletic activities. In Orland Park there is something for everybody. Doogan Park has a nine hole disc golf course, tennis, softball and a good area to walk your dog in. Schussler Park offers sledding in the winter and has a giant playground for the kids. Palos Park would be where you want to go if you get married locally. There are tons of trees, flowers and open spaces all around it. Tons of concerts and events are hosted in this park. Lake Katherine Nature Center and Botanic Park is a nature lover’s dream. In the summer wildflowers bloom and there is a waterfall there to see. There are tons of things to explore and it offers great hiking. Centennial Park you will get a traditional baseball diamond, soccer field and the option to fish in the two lakes on the south side of it. It makes sense our area has a park in the name. There are tons to choose from and they are all unique. I don’t know how anyone ever leaves our area. We experience all four seasons and get beautiful summer days and gorgeous snowfall. We have every sport offered and gorgeous nature hikes. Who would want to leave?
