About Lords Park


This 108-acre regional park, located on the east side of Elgin, was first established in 1892 by the Lord family of Elgin. This park has a wonderful history and is currently home to some of the area's destination facilities including the Elgin Public Museum, the Lords Park Zoo, the historic Pavilion and the Lord's Park Aquatic Center. This park offers numerous facilities in a picturesque setting of mature Hickory and Oak trees on rolling terrain. Picnicking is a popular activity at one of the two permitted picnic shelters. Playgrounds, basketball and tennis complement the open play field used for practice or pickup games. A large little league baseball complex is part of the Lords Park property and includes ten fields used by the little league group.
