I love to meet friends and take my dog for walks on the trails at Silver Springs. The person who maintains the park is incredible. He has been there for over 30 years and takes pride in everything. The trails are groomed and the bathrooms are clean. There are so many trails to take that provide shade and hill workouts.

We love it here. Great for hiking and fishing. Clean and usually quiet, except on weekends. It gets crowded. You can by lunch and bait and rent paddle boats.

If you like to travel to parks that aren't overcrowded you will love Silver Springs. There are nice hiking trails, areas for fishing, and picnic areas. In the summer there is boat rental. If you are interested in an easy family friendly canoe ride, rent a canoe in downtown Yorkville and paddle to the park. They will pick you up... More

This has been a go to place for me for the last 35 years. Even though I have been going for such a long time I always find another trail to enjoy. This is the favorite local park for our family to enjoy.

It is a nice SMALL state park. It is located on the Fox River making it accessible for canoeing. It also has a small lake and areas for picnicking.

A beautiful park great for taking hikes in and fishing. There's several playgrounds for children and large pavilions were I've seen family gatherings held. Great place for spotting wildlife like water snakes, spiders, deer, and songbirds.
