Updating the Perry Farm Trails
Beginning May 16th the Bourbonnais Township Park District will be upgrading different areas at Perry Farm Park.  The project will take approximately 3 weeks to complete.  The trails will be resurfaced and portions will be closed during this process.  Once the trails are completed, the roadway and the Exploration Station parking lot will be resurfaced.  Please follow parking signs during the project but the park will remain open.  Sorry for the inconvenience while we update for your future enjoyment!
