We love to walk and drive around Chalco. It has great paths with gorgeous scenery! We pass by there a lot in the evenings and it is great to drive through just to see the deer.

Another classic midwest lake-park. Nice 4-6 mile trail surrounding it, fishing, various playgrounds and picnic shelters in the cover of the surrounding trees. Low-key but just a great place to be. Paved trail is not so busy that you can't bike or jog.

A great recreation area for people to play sports; to walk, jog, fish, boat, picnic or drive. Numerous, numerous geese overhead on their migration path. As we drove around we must have spotted 30 white tail deer. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous through the trees....More
