Wicker Park

Park in Wicker Park, Bucktown & Ukrainian Village

The neighborhood's favorite green space is home to softball fields, a children's water playground, a winter ice rink, an active dog park, and indoor and outdoor movies.

Try to see a 16-Inch Softball game in action here. Chicago invented the game a century ago. It uses the same rules as normal softball, but with shorter games, a bigger, squishier ball and no gloves or mitts on the fielders. There's a league that plays in the park.
