Family Fun is what the Oak Park Area’s 18 communities is all about for both locals and visitors. Outdoor, indoor, participant or observer you will find the perfect fit here. A day at Brookfield Zoo is always a family favorite, but other adventures await. Wonder and Discovery, Fun and Games, Hiking and Biking or maybe a little fun On the Water are all available here.
Cernan Earth and Space Center is a great bet if you are raising a future scientist. If you have a budding naturist, the Oak Park Conservatory or Trailside Museum of Natural History are perfect. Younger kids might ignite that spark at Wonder Works Children’s Museum. If your family is all about the games, Galloping Ghost Arcade (the world’s largest arcade) is an unforgettable experience but if you want to play games together as a team Vault Escape, Escape Factor and iCombat have you covered.
If your family is all about the outdoors, the Cook County Forest Preserves offer something for every skill level. Hike or bike on the Salt Creek Trail or the Illinois Prairie Path or sail through the tree tops at Go Ape Zipline Tree Top Adventure Course. Wanting to put your kayak or canoe to good use, get On the Water with the Des Plaines River or ride the Salt Creek through Brookfield and Riverside.
Whatever your family calls fun, you will find it when you Visit the Oak Park Area.
