North Park is the perfect spot for families. Kids can slide, swing and climb at the playground, you can shoot hoops or practice your serve at the basketball and tennis courts. North Park offers 4 pavilions, including one that is enclosed. North Park also connects to Fugate woods. Just follow the walk/bike trail east, pass the school, and you’re at the entrance!
Go on a peaceful hike through the beautiful Fugate Woods Nature Preserve. Enjoy wildflowers and wildlife under the shaded Oak and Hickory canopy. With over 150 acres of native timber and restored prairie, Fugate Woods Nature Preserve is just 2 1/2 miles northeast of Fairbury. Trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset. Take your dog, leashed ones are welcomed.
Marsh Park is also a wonderful place for families to visit. Sit in the beautiful, white gazeebo; walk the trails; or have a picnic in the closed-in pavillion. Kids can enjoy the newly renovated playground, basketball court,… Make sure you stop by in the fall when the park is covered in golden leaves from the large maple trees.
