We have been going to Krape Park for years with our grand-kids. They love it! Always something to do there, whether it be using the playground equipment, playing miniature golf, riding the merry-go-round or the paddle boats. It's fun to watch the ducks too. Beautiful Park!

This is my favorite place to visit when in Freeport. Krape Park is beautiful! It's peaceful. This park is amazing, and I wish my hometown had something this special. There are hiking/walking trails, merry-go-round, paddle boats, kids playground, tennis courts, picnic tables and shelters for gatherings, an amphitheater and even a waterfall. You could easily spend a couple hours hiking... More

Krape Park is the greatest park that Stephenson County has! This park has many waking and biking trails, a waterfall, paddle boat and canoe rental, mini golf, Frisbee golf, picnic areas, tennis courts, ball diamond and concession stand. You must see this beauty!

You can bring your kids to so many different areas. During the summer months the Carousel, paddle boats, ducks, and mini golf are favorites. The walking areas are great. The park is huge and is a good place to rent for a B-day party or larger event. The new bathrooms are nice. Overall, this is the best place in Freeport

We had unseasonably warm weather this year and I took the grandkids to the park. There is a wonderful section just for toddlers and I noticed they recently replaced the swing set to "mom and me" swings. Your child can sit across form you while you swing them. They had nice sand all around the area, and the grand kids... More

Gorgeous country scenery in the city. The walking trails are well marked, paved and beautiful. I'd spend a weekend in Freeport just for this park! Spillway, waterfall, carousel, forest, big creek, trails.

One of the largest and nicest parks around the area with lots of diversity. The activities are only open high season and weekends. There is limited parking and you usually have to walk long distances to get to where you want. A great place to visit when in Freeport.

Very large park that you can actually drive through. Lots of places to park where you can get out and explore. Beautiful waterfall and dam with lots of wildlife. If you are looking to relax and take in the local scenery this is a great place.

Thank Bill M
