The park has installed new sculpture throughout the park this summer, 2016. My wife and I went to see it, and were impressed with the variety of sculpture displayed. I felt it was worth the time to go see them.

We enjoyed a quiet stroll through this park and walked the labyrinth for relaxation. Others enjoying the park were families and dog walkers. The Pleasant Home is also a sight to see.

Very pretty large park in Oak Park. Home to Pleasant Home, which is a fancy old home that has many venues during the year. Mills Park is a great dog park, but also has lots of trees, squirrels. Bounded by a pretty cast iron fence so it's safe. We live half a block from here. Surrounded by houses and an... More

Compact, pleasant area for a stroll and great squirrel watching! Oak Park is great for walking but we were happy to rest our feet on a bench for awhile.

This is such a nice park for a stroll - we like to cut through on our bikes. I always have to go by the beautiful mansion and admire the front porch. Went on a tour of the house and loved to imagine what the area looked like at the turn of the century.

Mills Park is next to the lovely Pleasant Home. It has a nice winding sidewalk and is nicely landscaped. Its popular with dog walkers and joggers. Located near the Marion Street business and restaurants, it's a good place for a stroll after eating out or shopping.

One of the really nice parks in Oak Park. Just enough trees to have both shady spots and sunny spots, plenty of room for frisbee-playing, and there's the historical society in the middle. I came here twice during a weeklong period with my boyfriend, and both times we saw people pass through with absurd quantities of canines on-leash. Think Robin... More
