Robinson Park

Phone: 309.682.6684

400 West Mossville Road
Peoria, IL

Narrow, informal paths lace the site, along with a substantial segment of the better-developed Illinois River Bluff Trail. For the ecologically-oriented visitor, the most intriguing component of Robinson Park is its 151-acre nature preserve, which consists of glacial drift hill prairies, and oak woodlands along the ridges and valleys.  If you have questions about rentals at this park, please call 309-682-1200.

Please note, as a dedicated Illinois Nature Preserve, dogs are not allowed in this park! With that designation from the Illinois Nature Preserve Commission, comes stricter rules about what can happen at these sites due to their rare and unique ecological value.
