Leased from the Metropolitan Sanitary District through the Village of Mount Prospect, this large park is in the far southeast portion of the Park District and completely outside of the Village of Arlington Heights boundaries. 

Four premier lighted softball and one soccer field are complimented by a playground and extensive paved walkway. Synthetic turf infields were added in 2012. The east half of this park is operated and maintained by the Mount Prospect Park District. Melas Park also has two sand volleyball courts; a picnic area, concession stand and 1.82 acre dog park called Canine Commons. It also has the District's largest quarter-acre playground with colorful, sturdy playground equipment, perfect for ages 1-3. A tubular climbing structure in the center has enough twists and turns to challenge 5 to 12-year-olds. The walking paths consist of a 1.30 mile perimeter. Or if you want to take a shorter route around the west side (AH portion) which includes the baseball diamond, playground and Canine Commons the distance is .79 of a mile. A bit longer route is on the east side (Mt. Prospect) which is .94 of a mile and takes you around the soccer fields and back open basin.
