Park District of Forest Park

Forest Park is home to several “tot- lots” and a large Park District. The Park District of Forest Park has an Aquatic Center which boasts two large water slides, a volleyball court and a child safe water sport area. The Park District has been the site for the Midwest’s annual “No Gloves Nationals” for many years consecutively and is consistently chosen because of the wonderfully maintained fields for play. Recently the park added a rink for “in-line” skaters and a state of the art Soccer field.
