About Tolentine Park

When we started to plan a new park several years ago, we first looked at our mission. We needed a park that was not only innovative but also was a prime example of sustainable initiatives. Tolentine Park is our vision at its best, which is “To deliver the ultimate experience in recreation and park services”. After countless hours of planning, and with some help from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, we built it; now all we need is you.

Our newest park has a variety of park features for all ages. One of our most popular features of the park is our Splash Pad. It has 12 nature-themed water features, and is a fun and cool relief for those hot summer days.

Besides the Splash Pad, we have many other places for children to have fun and play in the outdoors while enjoying nature. We have a great playground, complete with 4 slides, child and infant swings, chess table, and built-in bean bag toss! Then they can solve the mystery of how to get in and out of the garden maze!

If you take a stroll down our walking/biking path, you will be able to pass through all four of the eco-systems we have located at the park. You will pass a farm, prairie grass, wetland, and forest. Each is home to a variety of animals, birds and insects. If you want to view our green roof, which is one of our many sustainable initiatives in order for the park district to ‘go-green’, stop by the picnic pavilion and view our living roof. Then mosey over to the relaxing and beautiful sensory garden, where you can sit and listen to nature all round you.

Our community garden is another highlight of the park. It is a great place to plant a variety of plants, to perfect your ‘green thumb’, and grow closer with your neighbors in this community-fostering environment. We have 90 plots, each approximately 100 square feet, which are available for seasonal rent.

If you’re looking to play sports with friends and the community, then Tolentine is the place for you! At the park we have 2 basketball hoops, each with a three-point arc. We also have plenty of open fields, perfect if you want to start a game of soccer, baseball, or ultimate Frisbee.
