Everyone has been out and about enjoying this beautiful fall weather, which has resulted in an increase of visitation at our parks—especially McCollum Park. Due to recent increased usage of the McCollum Park path and for the safety of all visitors, bikes are temporarily prohibited on the path until further notice. The path is open to runners and walkers only. Please consider exploring another park if McCollum Park is extremely busy.
In addition to trails and walking paths provided by the Downers Grove Park District, the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County offers more than 145 miles of trails for you to explore. Two forest preserves are right here in Downers Grove.
Hidden Lake - East side of Rt. 53 just south of Rt. 56/Butterfield Rd.
Maple Grove - North side of Maple Ave. east of Belmont Rd. or Gilbert Ave. between Belmont Rd. and Main St.
