There are 82 publicly funded parks in Champaign, Urbana, and Savoy. Some of them are magnificent, and some of them are hey, pretty good! But there are others are sort of really bad. Counting down from 82, here's bottom 31 parks in our fair city.
Here is the final installment of Year to the Park A to Z! Next week, we'll run down Worst to First to give it a nice shiny bow, but for now, these are “parks” that are not run by the park districts, but rather, our municipalities. Yes, it is confusing!
For now, Human Kinetics Park is closed down for construction. The future, which will be the Martens Center, is very very bright, and will be a much needed boost to the north side of Champaign. Generosity and planning together knows no bounds!
