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.

Ferry Creek Wetland Restoration at Summerlakes Park

Those looking for a chance to experience a natural setting should visit the Ferry Creek Wetland Restoration at Summerlakes Park. This six-acre piece of open land has been landscaped for the benefit of water conservation and wildlife resources. The adjacent park features ball fields and other amenities for recreation.
