We’ve plumbed the web for the best paid and free stuff to do in Oak Lawn, so you can enjoy the time you have with your kids and save the planning for your next family vacation.

Oak Lawn Parks District

Some of the best of the free stuff to do in Oak Lawn, the Oak Lawn Park District is just a short drive from Oak Lawn and offers the perfect opportunity for entertainment, adventure, and family fun.

Location: Throughout Oak Lawn

Children’s Museum of Oak Lawn

Do you have a curious child with lots of energy? Take them over to the Children’s Museum and let them explore and experiment to their heart’s content. Children can experiment with science at the water table, explore physics at the golf ball ramp, or just let their imaginations run wild.

Location: 5100 Museum Dr., Oak Lawn, IL

Luv 2 Play

Looking for a place to party in the Chicago area? Then Luv 2 Play could be the place for your child. The 30,000 square feet of interior play space is filled with places to run, jump, crawl, and slide while the small baby and toddler areas keep your little safe from rambunctious older kids, too.

Location: 4845 W. 111 St., Alsip, IL

The Children’s Farm

If your children love animals and enjoy learning, then the Children’s Farm could be an ideal day out. Not far from Orland Park, the farm offers guided tours, hay rides, and of course, plenty of baby animals to pet and play with.

Location: 12700 Southwest Hwy., Palos Park, IL

Swallow Cliff Woods

Swallow Cliff Woods is an amazing outdoor recreation place near Countryside that’s perfect for your little bundles of energy. Take a long walk along one of the manicured paths, search for salamanders in the creek, or just get in a good workout on the stairs and leave better than when you arrived!
