Loved this place for its nice scenic beauty. Dupage River with its rich flora & fauna, well maintained pathways, the prairies, etc are so inviting that you can’t resist going for a walk everyday. And don’t forget to carry your camera with you.

Small but inspiring. Learned about the confluence of the two DuPage Rivers (yes there are two) and the history of the area. Several live animals and a good size aquarium. Adjacent to hiking and biking trails. Very scenic.
