Fox Park, with its central location, is one of the most popular locales for families in Oak Park. The large multipurpose field and baseball diamond is home to many league sports. The playground and tot-lot with its sand play area is a favorite with the kids ages 2-12. The splash pad, featuring Fox Park’s unofficial mascot, the whale, is the place to cool off on a hot summer day. Fox Center has a multipurpose room available for rent for birthday parties and other special occasions.
