Dreamland Park

Dreamland Park, about 10 acres in area, was added to the park system in 1996. The park is located along Taylor Avenue, southeast of Eisenhower Park. Bounding the park are Taylor Road to the west, large residential lots to the north and south, and agriculture to the east. The park has little tree cover on the northern half, but the south is a dense forested area with steep topography. An intermittent stream from the north feeds a fishing pond, the focal feature of the park. Dreamland Park offers primarily passive recreation facilities. The pond features a large fishing deck and a bridge over its northern tip. Three picnic shelters are scattered through the park, 1 near the pond and 2 higher on the site overlooking the pond. The easternmost shelter is larger and has a viewing deck. A playground is east of the pond. A native prairie area is on the east side of the park. 1,625 feet of paved trails, many ADA accessible, interconnect the park facilities and are routed through the prairie for close viewing. The paved parking lot along Taylor Avenue accommodates approximately 45 vehicles. Pedestrian access is provided by a sidewalk along Taylor Avenue.
