Rustic playground yen, children playing with food in the basket with the family to jump on and start dinner. people seem to slow down this road to the beautiful flowers blooming music looks beautiful in the eyes of the people to exercise. Everything is free, which is not easy to think the people enjoying the party's nature of Abu-all in all I am able to hold my liking ~ ♡ ♤ ♧ ◇

  • Took a walk around the yellow loop near the dam. Probably saw about 40 turtles during the walk. That was good to see. 
  • My husband and I love to go fishing and have a pic nik there, it's so peaceful and relaxing, we try to get out twice a month to fish together, due to our bust schedules. 
  • Beautiful views, great trails for hiking, dog walking, or bike riding. Excellent job of keep this park free of garbage and always looking fantastic. Very friendly park staff, ample parking, and a variety of terrains to exercise and enjoy!
  • A beautiful state park with paved/gravel paths that allow you to experience the beauty of nature. Biking or walking is preferred over rollerblading because of the gravel paths. Great for photography hobbyists as there is many lookout points specifically arranged to capture the beauty of nature. No entry fee, and if you enjoy the local Lake/Cook county park district areas, this one feels a lot more "deliberate" and organized. No camping facilities, but if you live in the area and want to spend a few hours outdoors, visit and you won't be disappointed!
  • One of the most peaceful places to go in mchenry county. Gorgeous and plentiful.
  • Beautiful but I would never recommend anyone to go alone.
  • One of the better State Parks in Northern Illinois with 5.5 miles of paved walking paths. With a Small lake that can be Kayaked and Fished. Terrain is hilly with many unique ecosystems to explore. Plenty of areas to picnic. And a kids play area.
