Bourbonnais has an enriched history, having been occupied by different Native American tribes and multiple settlements over the years. Once named for the beauty of the land, today the land is even more wonderful, as it now offers parks, preserves and trails that are waiting to be explored by you and your pup. There's also one veterinarian inside the city, and lots of other places in surrounding areas to take care of your pup. 

The Kankakee River State Park is one of the most popular destinations in the area. The park surrounds both sides of the Kankakee River up to 11 miles, with over 4000 acres of open space and protected land, and 6 miles of trails inside the park. There are spots for fishing, swimming, hiking, or just good ol' fashioned playing for you and your leashed pup. There's plenty of features too, like water fountains, trash bins, clean-up stations, parking, and benches.

The Perry Farm Park is on the southern end of two, with over 170 acres of recreational space with shelters, a living history farm with farm animals, fruit orchard, rose gardens, Native American caves, paved trails, playground, open recreational fields and picnic areas. The options at the farm are limitless, and with so much space, there's plenty of room for your pup to run around and play too! Remember to keep Fido on a leash though! 

For outdoor adventure in the Midwest, Bourbonnais is the place for you!
