  • A great place for a picnic or family reunion. The Park District is finishing up a water play station for children. There are trees, picnic tables, fire pits and a huge shelter. Tennis courts are handy for enthusiasts. It has walks through and around the park, handy for joggers or walkers.
  • Great playground. It has a permeable surface so even when the ground is wet you can still play. It also has great areas for different ages, shade at times, and the new water features looks fun! There is a bathroom near and water fountains.
  • This park is the hub of getting wet sand castle building and Pokémon hunting. I’v been to Hessel park several times. And it has never let me down. I like how big the park is , and how much stuff there is to do! The recent expansion of the new play ground, just makes the park even better. No matter the occasion. You and your family will get a kick out of what this park has to offer!!
  • All aspects are well maintained. Tennis courts, pavilion, and playground are especially good. There is a hiking sidewalk all the way around. They also host community events regular. It's also close to several food options.
  • Very nice play park, equipment is all squeaky new and an interesting water attraction is under construction. Should be ready for the summer of 2018 by the looks of it.
