Playground Party – All Are Welcome!

August 17, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


We are celebrating a whole year of inclusive play at the Oak Brook Park District’s The Sandlot, a Universal Playground on Saturday, August 17 from 4:00-7:00 pm! This fun and free playground party will feature entertainment, DJ, vendors, plus much more!

The Sandlot, a Universal Playground, was specially designed for all, regardless of age or ability. The theme of the event is based on the book, “Strictly No Elephants,” by Lisa Mantchev and illustrated by Taeeun Yoo which supports our goal of everyone being a part of the game. We hope you can join us for this free, family-friendly event!
