Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
March 20 tall grass prairie early spring and fall by Coal City Chitty Bang Bang
This prairie grass park is one of the best?if not THE best?of its kind in the State of Illinois. Stands of tall grass species can be seen.
The Visitor Center has an elevated viewing area in back. Also, the trail located on the West side has a bench on a hill with a view.
There is a down side: the tick season during Summer?but no ticks well into May. Spring and Fall have good prairie walks on cool days.
August 22 A great example of a true prairie! by William Near Chicago
This is an example of what a true prairie should be. This is a must see prairie. A great place for the family and for the nature photographer.
