    We loved this forest preserve. There were nice trails, lakes and beautiful scenery. You can rent kayaks there as well. They have a really nice archery range which was an unexpected surprise. My family had a relaxing and peaceful picnic and it's the perfect place to unwind

    There are lots of different things to do here, along with different trails. It's beautiful. Depending on where you want to go, you might have to drive for a little within the park. The map also isn't very clear.

    Has everything you need from a quick and lazy family (or work) gatherings. Affordable boating options (though there is always wait), multiple picnic areas / shelters, walking trails, fishing and even a small hill for snow slides

    Every part is so beautiful. The hill is perfect for watching the sunset and the views of the lake from inside are unmatched.
