This is a most wondrous place. Waterfall, carousel, concerts in the bandshell, lots of nature and natural surroundings. Very kid and pet friendly but there are also those quiet little places to get away from it all and read a book or have a picnic. A must for visitors!

Krape Park is one of the most beautiful parks to visit in Northern Illinois. I went there as a child, my son went there, and now our grandchildren have been there. It has 18 holes of disc golf, a newly finished walking path, two playgrounds, a duck pond, a fishing area, mini-golf and tennis courts.

The park district at Freeport is second to none. Krape Park is a gem. For a town this size it is amazing to have such a beautiful and fun filled city park.
