Detweiller is a popular multi-use destination for Peoria area residents who enjoy running/walking, soccer, volleyball, hiking, birding, and many other outdoor activities. Detweiller Drive, which runs through much of the park, features one of the finest, most diverse collections of oaks around. The early spring show of blooming redbuds, as well as the colorful fall foliage should not be missed!

Nature lovers will love exploring one or more of the park’s 5+ miles of hiking trails traversing the Illinois River bluffs.  If you have questions about rentals at this park, please call 309-682-1200.
