We do most of our family get-togethers at Baumann. Love it! Usually quiet, good fishing & friendly people. Great place for a picnic.

This pristine park is so good I really don't want to review it because it may draw more visitors which will ruin it. A roughly circular lake with stocked fish, a walking path all around it, tennis courts, a play ground for children and waddling Canadian geese and ducks along the Kishwaukee River, which runs along one side of the...

It has a very nice lake (no boats of any kind), with a paved level path for walking, biking, running, and wheelchairs. Plenty of benches to rest on, fishing if desired, fountain in the middle,Gazebo, plenty of trees to "just sit under". Bring a blanket... but watch where you sit, as they do have a lot of Canadian Geese and... More

This is a nice, quiet park. The path around the lake is good for a short walk or run. Sledding down the hill in the winter is fun.

PROS: abundant and safe parking; there is walking path that goes around the big pond/lake? that is the perfect length for kids on bikes and amateur walkers; there is a small hill that would be perfect for sledding in winter; small gazebos dot the walking path; the Kishwaukee river runs alongside it. The site of the 4th of July firework... More

Great place to start a day of canoeing. There is a nice size pond for fishing and some open space for running, picnicking, or walking a dog. The Kishwaukee river runs through it, and there is a nice restaurant down the road "BackYard Bar and Grill."
