Black Bear Park

The 28.67 acre Black Bear Park, located at 1784 Essex Drive just south of Shoe Factory Road was recently completed, supported in part by a $325,000 OSLAD grant. The park is located within a natural, diverse area with open water and natural wetlands and offers recreational opportunities while still maintaining the natural features through ecological stewardship, preservation and environmental education opportunities for all. Park amenities include two separate playgrounds, an open air shelter, multi-use paths and walkways, resistant exercise equipment, a nature trail, fishing dock and Hoffman Estates’ first ever disc golf course.

With its varied topography, open forests, and expansive wetland, Black Bear Park provides for a unique disc golf experience unlike any other in the Chicagoland area. This challenging 18-hole course is now open for play. The course allows participants the ability to experience the parks natural features in a challenging and fun way. Some of the holes were intentionally designed to play across and/or through the wet areas of the park, while other holes play through a 100+ year old hardwood wood lot.
