NOTICE

Due to the risk of coronavirus exposure, we are suggesting park visitors respect the "social distancing" of 6 feet by walking in one direction around the paved trails. When entering the park from our parking lots, please start on your right (when facing the trail) and walk in a counter-clockwise direction around the paved path. If stopping for birding or wildlife observations, move to the edge of the trails for people to easily pass.

THANK YOU.

Barnes Preserve

Enjoy this nature park with nearly a mile of non-challenging ADA paved trails that meander through the woods and into a meadow. Utilize the Romich Pavilion that houses 10 picnic tables and a stationary grill.

Support Barnes Preserve by purchasing an engraved bench for the park!

The Park District maintains the Barnes Preserve on donations. Our work is made possible through generous donations from organizations, businesses, and individuals. We do NOT receive funding from the county to operate the current park (Barnes Preserve) or future parks as grants do not normally include monies for operational use.
