This park is wrapped around an urban neighborhood and offers peace and rejuvenation from the hectic city life. There are bike trails and walking paths along the river and into the woods. We like to drop our kayaks in the water at Fox River Park...More

good option to walk, ride bicycle or play with kids but, the best part is the Glacial Drumlin trail with 35 miles (paved). Excellent option for ride bicycle or training.

This is a nice park for lingering, walking, exercising, and picnicking. Boat rentals available on the river. The formal garden alone is worth the visit. (in season, many wedding photography sessions occur) Kid friendly. Near the downtown area.
