Recreation
Natural Features
One of Warrenville’s best features is its ability to incorporate the natural landscape into the fabric of the town. Located on the banks of the West Branch of the DuPage River, Warrenville is essentially surrounded by a “necklace” of five Forest Preserves and Fermi National Laboratory. Together, these public spaces encompass 10,000 acres of open space and contain approximately 30 miles of off-road bike paths. This vast network of public open space provides many recreational opportunities, including fishing, canoeing, tubing, biking, hiking, cross country skiing, and camping.
