The only time I've visited this park has been during their annual Fourth of July Antique and Flea Market. It is a wonderful setting for such a fun time. The park has a wonderful old fountain in its center and there may be 100 vendors in all including some funnel cake and Grandpa's Snowballs (sno-cones). The vendors set up in... More

When you enter the park you can see the beautiful huge trees, green grass, fountain, picnic shelters, horseshoe pits, swimming pool, restrooms, all things you would expect to find in a small town park. Then you see the children's play area. Wow! I've never seen anything like it. It is huge with multiple levels and play areas, built mostly of... More

Parks are very nice and very clean. So pretty and peaceful. We saw families of ducks swimming and quacking, sounds of birds was so peaceful. The playgrounds for the kiddo's was fun. I wish we had such nice parks in my city. The only problem I had was the flies.

The park is a well maintained cool oasis within walking distance of the central business district.

From the shade of the large trees to the kid's play fort, this park is the best to unwind over lunch.

No trip to Fairbury would be complete without a cruise through the Fairbury City Park, located just west of downtown on 5th street. Every year on July 4th, there is a huge flea market that draws hundreds of vendors and thousands of people. There is also a very nice softball complex, baseball field, a vintage water fountain and a HUGE... More
