Splash Pad at Lions Park
Kids get drenched running through rainbow-colored archways, shooting water cannons and traipsing through geysers. The Splash Pad is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day (weather permitting) and is free for all.
Central Bark Dog Park
Central Bark is a great place to let your dog off the leash! One affordable membership allows you access into both the large and small dog parks year round. Membership for Central Bark is attained in-person only at the Village Clerk’s Office. To learn more about Central Bark, Click Here.
Healing Waters Pond
Located at the corner of Willow West Drive and 85th Street, Healing Waters Pond is a hidden get-away. With a small on-site gazebo, the pond is a perfect location for a picnic lunch. The retention pond is home to several bird species as well as bluegill, large and small mouth bass, and catfish.
There is currently NO FISHING by the public at Healing Waters Pond due to the time needed for the pond to repopulate itself. No fishing signs are posted on site and violators will be heavily fined.
On site is a small children’s playground and a gazebo.
