Orland Park is the place I call home

Orland Park, Illinois is a beautiful city with lots of interesting and fun places to visit.

  • The village has more than 50 different recreational parks, nature trails, and sporting arenas.

One of my favorite places is the Centennial Park Aquatic Center. My family and I have been going there during the summer every year since it opened. I was a sophomore in high school when the Centennial Park Aquatic Center in Orland Park, Illinois opened for business. The Aquatic Center has several water slides and two different pools. It is also home to one of the largest play areas for children. During the heat of summer, a cool dip in the pool is refreshing. The winter wonderland ice rink is also a really cool place to hang out during the cold and icy months. The ice rink is free to use and open during the cold months of the year. Most people bring their own ice skates, but there is a small shack that rents ice skates to the public. During my senior year of high school, I worked at the ice rink all winter long. I earn $5 an hour and my boss paid me with cash. I sat inside of the shack and rented ice skates to visitors. There was a small heater inside of the shack that I kept my hands and feet from freezing. The heater was barely big enough for the small room, but it worked extremely well. I really enjoyed working at the ice rink that winter and it is probably one of the biggest reasons why I didn’t get into trouble that year of school.
