  • Crow Island Nature Preserve

    The trail entrance is located adjacent to the Crow Island School outdoor play areas, making it easy to have both a nature and playground experience in one visit. See more at ThroughPlay.com: http://bit.ly/jl2T8f

  • Wheeler Park

    Due to its complexity, the design of the sand play area seemed more reminiscent of a children's museum exhibit than a playground. Children could use the pulley system to move the sand up from the ground to the tower. In reverse, children used inclined pipes and different holes to funnel the sand down to the ground again (or into the blue and red wheelbarrow, dump trucks, or concrete mixer toys).

  • McKenzie School

    This park has three different areas with distinct play structures, as well as open fields and a large concrete play lot, offering a variety of options for children. See more at ThroughPlay.com: http://bit.ly/jl2T8f

  • Maple Park

    Some of my favorite aspects of the park include: A bridge that children can both go under or over. The hill made of stones for a more challenging climbing experience and adds to the beauty of the park. The addition of trees with lower limbs, allowing children to easily climb them. An area of play equipment (shown to the left) that seemed to be designed for older children. I appreciated that this space was separated from the tot lot by a large open field (shown in the first photo) and was surrounded by trees, hopefully encouraging preteens and teens to play or at least hang out there.

  • Harper School

    Adjacent to Harper School's playground, is a smaller park with gardens, seating around a small tree, and a wooden bridge. The picket fence and gate give the entrance a very homey feel. See more at ThroughPlay.com: http://bit.ly/jl2T8f

  • Heller Nature Center

    A small children's educational cabin with information about native animals and insects. For example, children first learn about building log homes, then have an opportunity to use Lincoln Logs to design their own log home. See more at ThroughPlay.com: http://bit.ly/jl2T8f.

  • Friends Park

    In regards to a neighborhood park, this is my favorite so far.... The close proximity to coffee shops, ice cream stores, and the heart of the town, appears to make this an easy, natural destination for families. See more at ThroughPlay.com: http://bit.ly/jl2T8f

  • Penny Park

    To me what was most captivating were the ubiquitous private places - the wooden narrow pathways, the underlying crawlspaces with hidden artwork, and the enclosed towers, all providing secret spaces for children to play. See more at ThroughPlay.com: http://bit.ly/jl2T8f

  • Lincoln Park Zoo

    The Lincoln Park Zoo is free and a beautiful, expansive resource for families. It offers a variety of experiences, including animal exhibits, a Children's Petting Zoo, a Children's Zoo, and a new Nature Boardwalk. See more at ThroughPlay.com: http://bit.ly/jl2T8f

  • Millennium Park

    Millennium Park is a lovely, magical, and joyous place for families, and a true gift to the children of Chicago (and all those who visit). See more at ThroughPlay.com: http://bit.ly/jl2T8f
