Established 37 years ago, the park has grown into a major collection of 32 works that is set within the wild prairie swales of the Governors State  University campus. The giant sculptures include Paul Bunyan, a flying  saucer and a circular maze. Be prepared for lots of walking, and  consider breaking your visits into tours of the north and south parts of  the park to make the trip more manageable with kids.  There is plenty of free parking and a cafeteria which is open  Monday through Friday (hours vary, call the cafeteria directly at  708-534-4496).
