It's a big old oak tree. That's it. We were looking at a house across the street any so we took a look. All I can say is it was almost worth crossing the street to see.

The old tree is beautiful and it's neighborhood is equally gorgeous. Sometimes it make attract unfavorable guests but for the most part it is an awesome view of downtown Peoria and a trip back in time. Peoria has a rich history and this park and tree, as well as the surrounding homes, are telling it's story.

Not much to see. Maybe spend a 10-15 minute side trip and stretch your legs. Watch your surroundings as some vagrants do visit the area.
