“Year round destination”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

Silver Springs is a small state park, but I have always loved coming here for walks, regardless of season or weather. You can rent paddle boats or canoes during the summer, and they have a snack stand open then, too. There are trails that go around ponds and lakes, run along the river, and some that will provide a little more of a challenge. Of course, there is a spring there. It is a great spot to stop in the summer to get a splash of some cold, fresh water. The park is across the river from the famous Farnsworth House and provides a nice view.

“Nice park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

This is one of the better state parks to go for a walk at in the Western suburbs of chicago. I would have rated it better but it is small. You can walk the whole park in under 2 hours.

“Walk around the lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2011

Nice place to take a walk around the lake. My son and I walk the path looking for bugs and other nature. Always see something new. Great place for a picnic or if you want to rent a paddle boat.
