Facilities & Parks

Commons Park



Commons Park is located directly behind the Village Commons building at 2401 S. DesPlaines Avenue. This lovely 14 acre park has a playground for toddlers and school age children, a ball field, sledding hill, and two ponds which can be used during the winter for ice-skating. The beauty of the park has been enhanced by "Living Memorials" - trees, plants, bushes, and benches - donated in memory of loved ones.


Two pavilions and a gazebo are available in the park for picnicking, special events and summer concerts sponsored by the Recreation Department. The paved path through the park is an enjoyable walk for both young and old. In 2013, a bike path was added, connecting the Forest Preserve to Veterans Park.




Veterans Park



Veterans Park is located at 7550 W. 26th Street just south of the North Riverside Park Mall and west of Harlem Avenue. This park is home to all of our baseball, softball and soccer games.
