Nice park. Great place to take photos by the dam. Lots of Egrets by the dam and in the trees. Little playground for the kids. Rocks by the water are a good place to sit and enjoy the view and take photos. Off of a busy street but the park has parking. Nice bridges. Across from Port Edward Restaurant.

Nice park along the water, great place for a quiet walk. The old train trestles add unique character to the beauty of the park.

The Fox river is beautiful and there is abundant wildlife to view. Smack in downtown Geneva, a peaceful place just to take a scroll or rent a bike or canoe. A must see place to go!!

This is a beautiful park along the Fox River. Plenty of open spaces for picnicking and plenty to see and do. Nice playground for kids and lots of benches for sitting and watching the river and wildlife. Also a great place to take a break when riding your bike along the trails. Awesome free music concerts in the summer.

Great park. Nice setting. Fun play equipment. My son (4 years) feels like we are on an adventure every time we go there. We are!

Island Park has always been a beautiful location, as long as the Fox River stays within it's banks. Our Grandson loves the playground, and the Fox River Bike Trail runs through the park. The only drawbacks are the lack of closeby parking and the fact that the Mill Race Inn, which overlooked the park, has been closed for a number... More

It shockingly is actually an island just east of Geneva's downtown. Parking IS available if you know where to look, but do some research first. There is a "park lot", but it gets full quick. The island has bike paths where idiots with ugly biking clothes go speeding through. Plenty of geese...well the babies are cute. There are restrooms open... More

It's close to downtown Geneva and great for people who want to be active but not too stressed out working out. You'll find friendly crowds with bikes, strollers, and people of all ages. Wonderful and peaceful place.
