When it comes to bucolic, the folks in St. Charles, Batavia and Geneva know how to make the best of it.
There's Quarry Beach and Engstrom and Wheeler and Island and Mount St. Mary and Johnson's Mound and on and on and on. There are neighborhood parks so gorgeous they take your breath away. There are dog parks, skating parks, bike parks galore.
Given all of that—what's your favorite? Which one has the most history, bring back a fond memory, is the nesting place where you and your family find solace, serenity or just plain fun?
So pick a park, any park, then make your vote in our Patch poll.
