From twisty turvy slides to monkey bars and accessible swings, kids of all ages love a good playground to help ignite their imagination and burn off some energy. Luckily, Tinley Park is home to many of them.

Explore some of our favorite playgrounds in Tinley Park to run, bounce, swing and slide! Pack a snack or lunch and make a day of it.

Volunteer Park

Here, park-goers will find Tinley Park’s only playground zipline! Big kids will love soaring through the air — so hold on and fly! In a large play structure, they can also unleash some energy by climbing up and over bars and ropes. Swings cater to all ages and the littlest kiddos can enjoy adorable pretend play in stations that resemble a house and car. A mini playset with a slide and smaller climbing features will make them feel just as important as their older friends.

Freedom Park encompasses 6,000 square feet of a child’s interactive paradise and we love this spot because it caters to every type of young playground lover! Whether your kiddo loves to climb, swing, slide or explore, there’s a play structure for it. Fan favorites are the swing and spin and various mini rock-climbing walls.

Named after local hero Staff Sergeant Michael J Sutter, this astroturf playground is home to sensory-friendly amenities including colorful, textured surfaces to explore, lots of wheels and trinkets to spin, and musical stations that play a variety of sounds. Kiddos will especially enjoy competing against each other on a giant tic tac toe board, lifting themselves into the air on a four-person seesaw or bouncing until their heart is content on a spring rocker.

Remodeled in 2021, this little playground is a hidden gem in Tinley Park, set quite a ways back and fenced off from the main road. A clean, earthy palette gives this playground a cool, minimalist vibe. But the main play-set has the tallest tower of any of the nearby playgrounds, housing six slides, including two tall tunnel slides. A swing set, interactive music garden and four-person merry-go-round are also big and little kid approved.
