Established 36 years ago, the park has grown into a major collection of 29 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).
