Join us in celebration of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources FREE fishing days! Bring your pole, bait and container to put your fish in. This is a great way to help youth develop a lifelong love of fishing. Pre-registration is required. Check-in will begin at 8:00 am, fishing will begin at 8:15 am. We will end fishing at 10:00 am and hand out participation bags as you leave. All participants will receive a ribbon and goodie bag. This event is run on the honor system, the fish must be caught by the children, but assistance may be given for baiting and casting.

Movies in the Park – FREE!

Pack your snacks, bug spray and blankets into the wagon and head to the park! This summer we are bringing the big screen to some of our bigger neighborhood parks.
