Dr. Edwin B. Tharp Park

Located in the heart of the neighborhood at Park Central Drive, the park district acquired this passive park site in 1997. Named for active community member and longtime Tinley resident and dentist Dr. Edwin Bass Tharp, at just over 3 acres this park is truly a jewel in the neighborhood. With breathtaking landscape and a path with seating areas, you may spend time taking a peaceful walk or just sitting and enjoying the beauty that surrounds you.
