Imagine a playground where every child can participate in all elements of the design. A place where children of all abilities can play, socialize, and dream together; fostering acceptance, friendship, and understanding through play. For many children with disabilities this may represent the only place in their lives where they can swing, slide, climb, spin and play side-by-side with their friends and peers without having to abandon their usual means of mobility.
The Elmhurst Park District has been named not once, but twice by the Kidlist website on its list of 10 Best Parks and Playgrounds in the Near Western Suburbs for both Berens Park and Wilder Park. Both playgrounds have been renovated within the last five years with ADA-accessible and state of the art play equipment.
Here's an added incentive to recycle: When you bring reusable bags to Whole Foods Elmhurst, you'll support the Playground for Everyone.

In May of 1961 the Elmhurst Park District entered into an agreement with the Joseph Lizzadro Family Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation, to provide land for the construction and operation of the Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art (Museum).
