This large park, located adjacent to Bradley University, was established in the late 19th century. Filled with amenities that will appeal to dog lovers and sports fans alike, the park traverses a high bluff woodland that grades down into the floodplain of Dry Run Creek. Along with numerous picnic sites, the park also features a beautiful Japanese bridge. The roads through Bradley Park provide paved, but not so level hiking opportunities. If you have questions about rentals at this park, please call 309-682-1200.
Home of the Peoria Park District’s administrative offices, the Park packs a big punch in a small area.
The following are located within the park:
- Lakeview Recreation Center
- Owens Center
- Bonnie W. Noble Center for Administration
- Girl Scouts of Central Illinois
