East of Waukegan Road and south of Lake Cook Road, Countryside Park sits just outside the Northbrook Village boundaries in the Glenbrook Countryside subdivision in unincorporated Cook County. The land originally belonged to the homeowners’ association, which gave the property to the Park District on March 28, 1955 in exchange for a community park, improvements and continued maintenance.

Coast Guard Park, Playground History
In 1945, the Blackheath Golf Course clubhouse and swimming pool were located on the property, occupying three of the builder’s lots. During construction of the subdivision, the clubhouse served as a sales office. The lots were sold in 1954, and the developer donated them to the homeowner’s association, which demolished the clubhouse and pool and turned over the property to the Park District. The District added a baseball diamond in 1965 and a basketball court in 2001. The playground has been updated several times.
