Wilder Park

Voted by Chicago Magazine as the #1 Suburban Park in 1997, Wilder Park was the first park acquired by the Elmhurst Park District in 1921. A cultural hub, Wilder Park sits in the center of town and is home to the Elmhurst Public Library, the Elmhurst Art Museum, the Lizzadro Museum, the Wilder Mansion, and the Wilder Park Conservatory and Formal Gardens. Completed in 2008, the Wilder Mansion provides an additional 14,000-square-foot space for District and community use. The Wilder Park Conservatory is open all year and hosts stunning floral displays, while the Wilder Park Formal Gardens provide a beautiful setting for weddings.
