Enjoy relaxing, fishing, or biking at Hidden Lakes. Several small ponds fed by the Dupage River provide an interesting area in Bolingbrook. A bridge across the Dupage River allows bike access to the trails North of the river and Whalon Lake.

I rarely stop, but the fact that a path connects to this place from every direction means I skate through every couple days. Nice place to fish, stroll, skate, bike or take a walk.

Hidden Lakes at the northern end of Schmidt at Boughton. Great place for a picnic or a walk on the paved walkway with a wooded surrounding. Very relaxing.

Stopped here last week after not coming here for many years. The changes they have made are very nice to see. Will come back again, just a lot sooner than before.
