Most of the communities in the North Suburbs have there own smaller park. These parks are nice but may not contain all the elements of a larger county park.
The county parks are usually hundreds of acres of natural beauty, athletic fields, trails, and year round programs. They are the kind of places that you can find something to do no matter what your interests are. Should you choose to visit a county park here's a list with some links to help you get started.
