South Side Park Survey
The Parks and Recreation Department staff and Advisory Board would like your input when deciding the amenities for the South Side Park located on Lake Fracis Drive just east of Mt. Olive (former Rosebud Trailer Park lot).
Please take about three minutes to take our online survey. Please also encourage your friends, family and neighbors to give their input. We want to make this a true community park, so your input is vital.

Siloam Springs Kayak Park
The Siloam Springs Kayak Park is a nearly $2 million investment from the Walton Family Foundation. It offers 600 feet of engineered river, which expanded and created two distinct rapids. There are also fully accessible paved trails along the Illinois River, picnic tables, a climbing boulder for kids, changing rooms and a family swim area with riverside seating.
