You don’t get too many sunny winter days in Chicagoland, so my daughter and I wanted to soak up every minute outdoors. Today we discovered a park in Orland Hills, which is just nextdoor to Tinley, called Elm Place Tot Lot.

About Elm Place Tot Lot

The Elm Place Tot Lot is a small playground perfect for young children ages 2-5 that consists of:

  • an arch swing set with two adult and two infant swings
  • a cyclone slidea tube slide
  • a double slide with a bubble panel
  • chained ladder
  • two sets of park benches

There’s also a shallow retention pond behind the park that in winter is a perfect sledding hill for very small children, who are just learning to sled.

Favorite parts: My daughter loved the swings (which looked very new) and the castle playset’s high tower too.

For parking there are two options:

  1. You can park on the street, but only on the northside (there is signage)
  2. Or you can use the parking lot of the apartment complex across the street.

Location Address:
16100 Street At Elm Place
Orland Hills, IL 60487
