It is located directly east of Barrie Center, another recently renovated facility featuring a field house, indoor playground, tot lot and multi-use sport courts that can accommodate tennis, volleyball, basketball, and other sports. See park map.
Barrie Park re-opened in fall 2005 after a 5 year environmental cleanup effort. A manufactured gas plant operated on the site of Barrie Park from 1893-1931, leaving behind by-products that contaminated the soil. This contamination was discovered in 1999 and through coordinated efforts between the Park District of Oak Park, Village of Oak Park, ComEd and NiCor, cleanup of Barrie Park began in August 2001 and completed in December 2003. Park renovation began shortly after the completion of park remediation.
