Weather permitting, come for a wonderful potluck, pratice your French and stay to enjoy a walk along the Fox River or rent a banana bicycle or a bicyle built for two or a paddle boat and tool around on the river. Please bring along your own chair or blanket as well as a dish to pass. If it rains, we will reschedule. There is no cost to get into the park.
This linear park site lies along both banks of the Fox River between Barstow Street and Moreland Boulevard.
A pair of paved pathways winds in a 1.7-mile serpentine loop throughout the park. These paths are separate and accommodate both walkers and bikers. Frame Park has been extensively landscaped. The Fox River divides the park's landscapes into two distinct areas. The east side of the park is very formal with intensively planted perennial and shrub beds. Individual specimen trees can also be found here. The west side of the park emphasizes a more natural river edge landscape, which also utilizes beds and individual trees.
The Barstow Plaza is located adjacent to the Lee Sherman Dreyfus State Office Building. The key feature is a large lagoon area with tiered concrete seating. There is a small information kiosk, a paved area for small gatherings. The dam has been redesigned and lighted to enhance the aesthetics of the waterfall. The Plaza provides ample seating areas for informal use.
