Carle Park Urbana

There are many fine parks dotted across the Champaign Urbana area. They offer great walking spots (Meadowbrook Urbana), swimming (Centennial Champaign), events (Westside Champaign with its Taste of Champaign Urbana this weekend) and many more.

But one of the grandest, best shaded, most tranquil, and oldest of them all is Carle Park in Urbana.

Carle Park features a tree walk guiding you to some of the areas grandest trees, sculpture- even a Laredo Taft, and lots of shade.

Here are some pics:
