Norwood Park

5801 North Natoma Avenue
Chicago, IL 60601

The 14-acre Norwood Park boasts the Chicago Park District's only outdoor swimming pool on the North Side with a water slide, making it a favorite destination for summer day camps and young swimmers in the neighborhood. Sports programs for youth include flag football, floor hockey, outdoor soccer, track & field, and tumbling. On the cultural side, they can enjoy classes in acting, piano & music, and tap dancing.

Norwood Park is home to a state-of-the-art fitness center, equipped with circuit weight machines, free weights, and cardiovascular machines. A 1/5-mile oval, gravel running track with lights surrounds the baseball diamonds, a outdoor inline skating area, dog park and four tennis courts sit south of the park fieldhouse.

Parents with preschoolers gather for such programs as Musical Moms, Pops & Tots, MightyFitFamily, as well as arts & crafts. A range of activities exist for adults and seniors, including sewing, aerobics, and basketball leagues. Recently the park added a Special Recreation program for children/adults with special needs.

Norwood Park hosts some of the most entertaining special events for neighborhood families, outdoor movies, Halloween parties, and its annual Dinner with Santa.

Park Hours: 6:00 AM-11:00 PM
