Carroll Park is a favorite among kids with a pirate ship themed playground for young ones and a larger one shared with the neighboring Lincoln School with plenty of places to climb for the older ones. Carroll Center is dedicated to many preschool and afterschool programs during the school year, but has a multipurpose room available for rent for birthday parties and other special occasions on weekends during the summer. See park map.
The field house at Carroll Park, one of three in the Park District designed by John Van Berger, was constructed in 1928. In 1965, the street was closed between Carroll Park and Lincoln School to allow for the school playground to be connected to the park and that playground was renovated in 2007.
