This 12-acre beautifully maintained community gathering place is filled with activity year-round. From toddler programs to our popular after-school programs and fitness to sporting activities, as well as, numerous greening programs [at the greenhouse] there is something for everyone. For those who enjoy a good game of soccer, check out the Nike Grind Field Turf funded by our partners through Nike's national Reuse-A-Shoe program. The field is an example of environmental innovation and Nike given back to the communities. Contact the park supervisor for rental availability. Discover the wonderful world of nature! Spark your curiosity and explore the fun & educational offerings at the Chicago Park District’s only park with a teaching greenhouse, located within the grounds of Kilbourn Park. Created by the Irving Park District, Kilbourn Park takes its name from adjoining Kilbourn Street, named in honor of a small town located near the Wisconsin Dells. The Irving Park District had formed in 1910 to create and manage parks for its tree-lined, middle-class neighborhood. Fifteen years later, the district acquired the site for Kilbourn Park and improvements began. By the late 1920s, the park's recreational features included athletic fields, a running track, horseshoe and tennis courts, an 18-hole putting green, two playgrounds, a children's wading pool, a sand box, and penned-in rabbits. Kilbourn Park also had a fieldhouse, maintenance building, and greenhouse. A unique feature, the greenhouse was used to display tropical plants and to propagate outdoor plants for use throughout the entire Irving Park District.

Is the Easter Egg hunt still on?
Is the egg hunt today? The site says today but no one is here to represent this event? A lot of people here are confused
Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt I saw this on the Chicago Park District website but notice it's not on your Events list on Facebook. Is this event happening?
