This is the flagship of Kenosha County Parks. Known to locals as “Pets”, this park is the oldest in the system and offers a wide range of enjoyment for people of all ages throughout the year. The rolling landscape adds beauty as well as challenge to its 18-hole golf course. Excellent picnic areas feature 5 picnic shelters, restrooms and playground areas, softball diamonds, nature trails, sand volleyball courts. Home to one of the State’s natural hardwood forests, the fall color in both the park and on the golf course is breathtaking. Comprised of 360 acres, this park is located on County Highway “A”, just east of State Highway 31.

The following facilities are available for rental at this park:

To reserve any of the facilities, please contact Kenosha County Parks.

There are also two outdoor chess tables at Petrifying Springs Park: one by Parking Area 1 by the well, and another at Parking Area 4 by the river.  These are free to the general public, but please note that you will need to bring your own pieces.
