Fantastic city park with an extensive tallgrass prairie, excellent paved trails, playground for kids, sculptures, and wildflower gardens. You can get away from it here, or be in the thick of it...your choice. Bikers, walkers, runners, strollers, and saunterers abound.

One of our favorite places to walk in Champaign- Urbana. Lots of families around the trail and at the playground. Lots of animals enjoying walks with their families and opportunities to see wildlife as well. Art lovers will enjoy the sculpture garden throughout the park.

Boys had a great time playing in the wooden "castle" as they call it. They met 5 new friends to play tag and hide n seek. Great benches to take a rest and still keep them under watch. Then took a walk on a trail....More
