Easy access off 144th (Hwy 50) and Giles. Bike trails leading into the park and all around. Walking trails are quiet and serene. Lots of waterways and birds. Nesting for Bald Eagle on the east side of the lake. Not a lot of people on...More

We love to walk and drive around Chalco. It has great paths with gorgeous scenery! We pass by there a lot in the evenings and it is great to drive through just to see the deer.

We come here quite often. My family especially likes the cookout are for breakfast. They eat breakfast then enjoy the rest of the day plying at the park.

Another classic midwest lake-park. Nice 4-6 mile trail surrounding it, fishing, various playgrounds and picnic shelters in the cover of the surrounding trees. Low-key but just a great place to be. Paved trail is not so busy that you can't bike or jog.
