Located on the picturesque grounds of Bird Park, Bird Park’s Family Fun Park offers a variety of activities for the whole family.

The park is located on the pristine shores of the Kankakee River and boasts a historic quarry that is filled
with opportunities to view wildlife in their natural environment. Guests may enjoy the picnic pavilions, playground jungle, scenic river-walk path, and Splash Pad.

Come by for a stroll on the walking paths or a family picnic. Fun can be found from one end of this park to the other. Along with plenty of wildlife the area makes a great respite for young and old.

All parks open from dawn to dusk.

The splash pad is currently not open due to mechanical issues. We are working as quickly as possible to repair motors and water lines to comply with state guidelines and inspections.


We will be closed for the 2017 season. We are currently in the reconstruction/redesign phase with an aquatic architectural firm. Check back for update of the project.


Several positions are available at Ice Valley Centre Arena and the RecCenter. Applications may be downloaded at or filled out in person at Ice Valley or Bird Park Administrative Office. Positions are open until filled.
