Oz Park is a great park in Chicago, near Lincoln Park. The statues from the Wizard of Oz are fun to look at and take pictures with. The Emerald City Garden is beautiful to walk through. Riley loved Dorothy's Play Lot because there were so many places to climb and play. There are 2 huge wooden structures with cubbyholes, bridges, climbing areas, etc. You can swing, hang and be a super hero or pirate.

Oz park also has a spectacular Emerald City Garden which ...
