“Nice park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

I am newer to Peoria and this park seems to have the best trails that I have found so far. The visitors center has a lot of interesting displays and a nice shop. The property seems to be pretty well managed for native plantings. They do hold volunteer work days as well as host many clubs such as Audobon and others, check the website for more info.

Nice trails from easy to hard long and short. Did not see much wildlife but had a good time. Lady at the gift shop was helpful.

“Beautiful peaceful place for a respite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Forest Park offers an extensive and well maintained trail system. The trails offer varying levels of difficulty and duration. There is a small nature center at the entrance to the park which offers a few exhibits detailing information about the local fauna and flora of the area. We will definitely come back here again when we are in town to enjoy a peaceful walk in the woods!

This is a beautiful park with nice hiking paths. Perfect way to spend a whole day, or just a couple of hours.

“Awesome trails!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Excellent forested trails to walk! Some long and some short, but all are tied together and a map is at each trail head and joining trail. It's a place to relax and enjoy the forest. Great in the fall!
