Krape Park Main
Krape Park
1799 S. Park Blvd.

Awarded "Outstanding Multi-use Facility" award by Illinois Parks and Recreation Association.

Heavily wooded Krape Park features a picturesque waterfall that tumbles down from a high limestone bluff, an operating one-of-a-kind carousel that costs just 50 cents to ride, tennis courts, multi-use trails, sledding hills, cross country skiing trails, a baseball diamond, numerous picnic tables and a duck pond.

In the summer, people rent canoes and paddle boats in the same area where ice skaters skate in the winter. Krape Park's challenging Yellow Creek Adventure Golf Course entertains people of all ages, as does the fishing pier on Yellow Creek. Children delight in Kids' Kastle, a 10,000 square foot structure built by community volunteers and Little Kids' Playground, designed for the youngest set.

Not to be overlooked is the Koenig Theater, an outdoor band shell that earned the "Outstanding Facility Renovation" award in 2000 from the Illinois Parks and Recreation Association. Throughout every season people gather to enjoy band concerts Under the Stars, hear vocalists, attend church services or graduation ceremonies.

Krape Park earned the "Outstanding Multi-use Facility" distinction because there is truly something for everyone to do. It is a regional gathering place for those that want a unique recreation experience.
