Self-Guided Tours

Churchill Park Self-Guided Tour

Welcome to Churchill Park. No swingsets or slides here! What you’ll find is more than 23 acres of woodland, wetland, prairie, trails, and boardwalks. Take a self-guided journey through this living landscape, located at 271 St. Charles Road, to enjoy some sunshine and recharge. Delight in the hundreds of species of native plants and wildflowers, listen for a loud eep! as a Green Frog leaps away from the embankment as you pass, and see if you can spot a muskrat.

Ackerman Woods Self-Guided Tour

To access the woodland loop trail at Ackerman Park, park in the main lot of Ackerman Sports & Fitness Center. Then head back towards St. Charles Road by following the sidewalk along the entrance road. The wood-chipped trail is on the west side of the park entrance road, across from Parkview Church.
