Crystal Springs may be near Fairbury, but it is a world apart from city life.
The 73-acre park just south of Fairbury offers recreation and a variety of wildlife viewing opportunities in a location that is less than five miles from civilization.
Two spring-fed lakes and a third man-made pond provide fishing opportunities for visitors. A variety of fish, from large-mouth bass to catfish and blue gill, are available for catching at Crystal Springs. Trout were stocked within the last year.
Crystal Springs also includes campgrounds with RV hook-ups, picnic areas and playground equipment.
Birdwatching is also a main attraction of Crystal Springs, as many varieties of migrating birds have been seen at the park. Recently, eagles have been seen at the park, drawing in new birdwatchers.
