Bordered by Jaeger Street, City Park, Reinhard, and Deshler Avenues, Schiller Park has operated as "Village Center" for festivals and neighborhood activities since the early 1800s. It has had other names - Stewart's Grove, City Park - but it remains a popular site for festivals, just plain strolling and play, and is the home of the German Village based Actor's Theatre. The park has a memorial garden and a decorative pond that appeal to folks who stroll through. A fountain was built and a lake excavated, and in 1891 the Villagers presented the park with a bronze statue of German poet Schiller which had been cast in Germany and transported free of charge across the Atlantic.
