Spring Creek Reservoir
The preserve is open one hour after sunrise to one hour after sunset.
Things To Do
The 90-acre Spring Creek Reservoir has an oak savanna, meadows, and an immature woodland surrounding the reservoir. The preserve is home to a variety of plants and wildlife.
In presettlement times, the forest preserve was almost entirely woodland with a small slough. It was a gravel pit from the 1950s to the mid-1970s, when it became a reservoir. The Forest Preserve District acquired the reservoir in 1987 and additional parcels in 1999 and 2000.
