Oak Grove Park
eBird Bar Charts by Season
A stand of old oak trees is the centerpiece of Oak Grove Park. The park offers a variety of recreation opportunities. Soccer fields, including a stadium with lighting, baseball diamonds, tennis courts, two playgrounds, picnic shelters, a dog park, paths for walking or jogging, benches for resting and relaxing, an archery range, a fitness trail with two types of outdoor exercise equipment, and a pond and dock for fishing. The playgrounds feature climbers, belt swings and infant swings.
John and Martha Sukola bought their farm in 1946 and when they were ready to retire in 1994, they decided they would rather see their land turned into a park instead of a housing development. They sold 101 acres to the Park District and donated the contents of their barns to the Historical Society. An additional acre of land along Social Row Road was added to the park in 2008.
