I’m always on the lookout for fun parks and we found one while we were in the south suburbs – Heritage Park in Homer Glen! Located behind the Homer Glen Village Hill, the 103 acre park offers something for everyone. And you’ll be happy to know that it’s conveniently located to a few farms (Bengston’s and Konow’s) and just a few minutes away from I-355, Heritage Park is the perfect stop to stretch your legs, channel your inner ninja warrior, or spot a few scarecrows. Read about all the fun!

Things to do at Heritage Park:

See scarecrows

On our particular visit, scarecrows were displayed along the walking path.It was tough trying to find our favorite one – the kids had so many!  It’s amazing how creative some people were!

Ninja course

Calling all ninja warriors! This is the real deal. I do have to say that this ninja course is better suited for older kids and a bit more difficult. Unlike the Ninja Park in Schaumburg, this one does not have a timer. Nevertheless, the kids still had a great time (even if they needed a little help from me.)

Nature playscape

The small nature playscape area was adorable. Perfect for those that love to hop from stump to stump or balance from one log to the other.

Small playground

Next to the nature playscape area and ninja obstacle course is a small playground with swings and a simple play structure. Unfortunately, there are no slides. 

Bring your pets

On this outing we had our puggy with us. While I watched over the kids, my husband took him for a walk around. Love that this path was pet-friendly.
