“Escape into a prairie in the middle of suburbia!”
Review of Spring Valley

Over 100 acres of restored prairie, wetlands, heritage growth and Volkening Farm, a recreation of a working farm await you as you meander three different paths. The longest path is only .75 miles, so combine them to take it all in. The nature center has activities for all ages and in winter, old fashioned snowshoes, to traverse the paths. Scenic viewing areas, benches and boardwalks make a top-notch experience. Spend a couple of hours here or takeaway brief respite.

This place is a nice break from the hectic life outside. You feel you are in a special place and you are. We went in the early evening when the buildings were closed. That didn't matter because we mainly wanted to have a walk. The vegetation is taller than people but you don't feel claustrophobic because the walkways are wide.

Great place to take a walk, relax and rest. Fortunatley for me just minutes from home. Saw couples with small children or babies taking family pictures there and also "expecting" couples having a photo session there. Highly recommended for those who are nature photography enthusiasts. Important tip! Please note that in the evening insects are all over the place.

I grew up in Schaumburg going to summer camps here. I cherish all the time spent on the trails. This nature area is run by the Schaumburg Park District. They do a great job offering classes and activities. The trails are open all year round during the day. I enjoy walking here during all 4 seasons. The farm is great as well and I highly recommend this place to all ages - singles and families. Get some fresh air and enjoy some local prairie, forest, and farm!

We have young children & stayed in town for the weekend. We spent about an hour playing and exploring here. We didn't see everything, but had a nice time and enjoyed burning off some energy on the trails with the kids. Definitely worthwhile!
