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.
Support Barnes Preserve by purchasing an engraved bench for the park!
Purchasing an engraved bench is a lovely way to provide a place of remembrance for a loved one or show your support of Barnes Preserve for future generations. For information on placing an order, visit our Purchase a Bench page.
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.
