Walking tour of Wicker Park for families

 
 

Play.

The crown jewel of the neighborhood is, of course, Wicker Park (1425 N. Damen Ave.). Hit the playground, baseball diamond, basketball courts or chill out in the grassy fields. The fieldhouse is home to activities for everyone from toddlers to adults. The bustling dog park is an attraction all on its own for little animal lovers! On Sunday mornings during the summer and fall, the park fills up for a lovely local farmers market. Nearby, the recently rebuilt Dean Playground Park (1344 N. Dean St.) features a water spray area and open field for playing soccer or baseball. Its cul-de-sac location means that most of the neighborhood doesn't even know about this quiet gem.
