Chicago, Illinois: Oz Park - "Wizard of Oz" Statues

Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, Dorothy, Toto. Was Oz in Illinois? Guess we missed that part. But the sculpture tributes are well done.

Oz Park - "Wizard of Oz" Statues

If you grew up watching the "Wizard of Oz" (or your parents cajoled you into watching it), then the statues in Oz Park are a must see! Over time, benefactors have adorned the park with our favorite characters: Tin Man - 1995, Cowardly Lion - 2001, Scarecrow - 2005, and Dorothy and Toto - 2007. Gasp, is the wicked witch next? The flower-spangled Emerald Garden is a bonus.

Oz Park Wizard of Oz statues

Visited the Oz Park this past week. My family enjoyed it. My daughter was hoping for a Wicked Witch statue and some Munchkin statues, however there are just four Oz character statues: the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, and Dorothy with Toto. I like the Tin Man statue the best.

Oz Park

Oz Park is named after the author of The Wizard of Oz. The 13 acre park features large statues of the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, and Dorothy and Toto. It also has an "Emerald Garden," and a "Dorothy Play Lot," plus a winding "Yellow Brick Road."

[Tina McMahan, 07/08/2008]

The author of the Wizard of Oz was L. Frank Baum -- perhaps that's the official name of the park? On maps it's labeled Oz Park.

"Wizard of Oz" Tin Man statue

There is a statue of the Tin Man from Oz at the corner of Oz park. It is there because the name of the park it stands in is Oz park. It's bright and shiny and holds an axe.
