Lords Park is another great park located in Elgin, IL. It is full of history. Lords Park has a museum and a living animal farm and zoo. The pavilion that now hosts weddings for locals used to also warm ice skaters years ago when they skated on the pond. Now, we enjoy the bison and elk and deer that live there. The elk enjoy a call or two – see the video at the end of this post… Also, the pond near the pavilion has several duck couples and flocks of geese. Elginites enjoy sledding there with their families as well. We learn more about the watershed on the other side of the elk enclosure. The stream runs through during the spring, summer, and autumn. Plus, Lillie’s favorite – squirrels!! Squirrels in great abundance actively play throughout the park. This is due in large part to the large centuries old trees. Basketball and tennis courts are available year round for outdoor enjoyment as well. Now, follow us on our winter walk through Lord’s Park!
Welcome to the bonus video!! Lillie and Patty crunching along in the snow. Who says snow has no sound? Every season brings unique sounds and winter is no exception!
