Ridgewood Park


Size: 4.0 Acres
Address: 5530 Grand Ave.
Location: Ridgewood
Ridgewood Park is a deep, wedge-shaped park centered in the Ridgewood subdivision. Its flat terrain is enhanced by bordering backyards, a walking path that extends out of the park to the west. Street exposure is only on the east at Grand Avenue, which adds to its cozy atmosphere.
From the west going east there is a basketball court, playground, a pavilion, a soccer field, water fountain and a little league baseball field. In 2007, the entire playground was rebuilt by Park District Staff and community volunteers. This project received a $5,000 grant from KaBOOM! and support from the residents’ civic association which helped supplement the overall project costs.
