Carroll Park is a favorite among kids featuring a new tot playground (2020) and a larger, new playground (2020) shared with the neighboring Lincoln School offering plenty of places for school-aged kids to climb, spin and swing.
Carroll Center is home to many preschool and afterschool programs during the school year. A 2,400 square foot addition was completed on the Center in 2020 to accomodate the growing need for camps and afterschool care and the Park District’s overall need for more program space. The Carroll Community Center is currently not available for private rental. See park map.

The field house at Carroll Park, one of three in the Park District designed by John Van Berger, was constructed in 1928. In 1965, the street was closed between Carroll Park and Lincoln School to allow for the school playground to be connected to the park and that playground was renovated in 2005 and again in 2020.
