So nice to see they have a free park which has a huge wooden play area, as well as a pool. The kiddie side is free. I didn't use the other side but I was told it is 2.50. Has diving boards & life guards. Beautiful setting for a picnic!

Was out killing time and happened upon this park. For a small town, it is quite an expansive park, well laid out and some pretty features. I'd like to see the beautiful fountain running next time I'm here. Pleasant surprise.

The pool also offers showers, bathrooms, lockers,... More

Not a bad park, Fairbury has 3 parks and this one is the best. It has a nice playground and horseshoe pit. That's about it. Only downfall is it's very traffic heavy so you have to watch for your kids the whole time.

This was a nice city park. Not hard to find. Public swimming pool, didn't get a chance to swim in it but looked nice. Lots of shady spots to relax.

The only time I've visited this park has been during their annual Fourth of July Antique and Flea Market. It is a wonderful setting for such a fun time. The park has a wonderful old fountain in its center and there may be 100 vendors in all including some funnel cake and Grandpa's Snowballs (sno-cones). The vendors set up in... More
