Thanks Sabine of Springfield for this update Aug 1, 2009- Now with Paddle Boats or (Pedal/Peddle Boats)!!! $10/hr from Union County website: “The boats are open for use from April 1st to October 31st, seven days a week, 12-6 p.m. on weekdays, and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. on weekends”

Definitely a playground for school age kids and not pre-schoolers.  have a rockwall but noticed some of the grips were missing, and may need repair.  In the winter be go sledding in this area, great stuff! For an excellent resource and detailed maps for Union County, see
