Des Plaines Park District

Centennial Park

Centennial Park is located at 1395 Oakwood Avenue.  (At Center Street.)

Centennial Park opened on July 4, 2020 to celebrate the Des Plaines Park District’s 100 year anniversary. This beautiful neighborhood park has a 75 foot zip line, the first of its kind in the northwest suburbs; a playground with myriad climbing equipment, steppers, slides, and swings; musical instruments for sensory play; a gazebo and picnic table; benches for reading and relaxing; a five station workout area with exercise equipment; and a walking path through the park. The park is fenced on the two sides adjacent to the streets. A time capsule was buried on July 4, 2020 and is marked with a stone and commemorative plaque.






Through an Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) Grant, we plan to expand the open play space in this neighborhood park.
