Plenty of attractions to peak your interest from the old restored buildings like the Neff Grocery ,barber shop and the Red Oak school. The one room school which I attended as a kid shows the nostalgia of the past as does the grocery. Other buildings and a gazebo make for interesting trip. Also has a nature Center, fishing lake and... More

Great park. My favorite one in Vermilion County, although Forest Glen comes in a close second. Nice trails. The lake is gorgeous in the fall. The little city has neat old buildings that you can walk around and check out.

They have a great event every August that combines some running races, an open car show with over 200 cars, and concerts in the afternoon and evening. It's a great event and getting better every year. It's centered in their historic village and has them open for tours during the event.

This is my favorite park in Vermilion county. I may be baised though, because the chapel at Bunker Hill was the sight for our wedding. We also have attended many family reunions at the Hideaway. The park is very peaceful unless there is a big event being held, and even then the park is big enough that you don't get... More

Level terrain makes for great walking, bike riding, or cruising around. Numerous shelters for picnics and the "Bunker Hill" area is fantastic to walk around. Great spot for fishing as there is multiple areas to cast your line or even launch a boat. Very spacious. No need to fight for space to have some peace and quite. Safe place to... More
