Owner description: Bolingbrook Park District offers a safe and beautiful trout farm for perfect for an afternoon of quality fishing. The ponds at Hidden Lakes are stocked in April and October with trout and catfish are stocked May - September. All revenue generated from Hidden Lakes permit fees goes directly to stocking the wide variety of fish in the lakes.

The lakes are fun if you love fishing, but if you're looking for natural beauty I suggest checking out other places. Lily Cache Greenway is especially beautiful off 111th and Weber - a trail loops past the soccer fields, around the lake, through restored prairie, and out toward the water tower. Riverview Farm has a lovely old stone farmhouse. And the trail along the river that begins in Hidden Lakes is very nice - goes all the way west to a playground and park. But Hidden Lakes itself feels a bit artificial and constructed to me.

this is a nice walk. You have three lakes you can fish in but hand't fished myself. I have used the canoe launch. Easy in and out. It also has a nice bike trail. Has bench to sit and relax by the water. It does cost to fish in the lakes and also has a bait shop

This is part of the Bolingbrook Park District. Tucked away off one of the main streets in town. Scenery is lush and beautiful in the Spring and Summer months. Can go fishing or have a picnic. Great place for my kids to explore nature. A new Nature Center opened up a couple of years ago.
