The local pool is conveniently located and easily accessible with ample parking and reasonably priced. The pool generally opens on Memorial Weekend and closes the weekend before school starts. The pool also offers showers, bathrooms, lockers,... More

Check out the fountain, play park and train. Very nice attractions for a small town. Many picnic areas too.

Not a bad park, Fairbury has 3 parks and this one is the best. It has a nice playground and horseshoe pit. That's about it. Only downfall is it's very traffic heavy so you have to watch for your kids the whole time.

This was a nice city park. Not hard to find. Public swimming pool, didn't get a chance to swim in it but looked nice. Lots of shady spots to relax.

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. Mature trees provide good shade and the central part of the park is like being in another more relaxed time. Entrance is via a nice boulevard and the park is overlooked by the requisite World War II tank. The baseball field is undergoing renovation... More
