Tante Park

Tante Park

Tucked away in all its natural glory

Located east of Pekin on Broadway, Tante Park is a secluded 40-acre park with open picnic areas, play fields, teepee shelters, and comfort stations. The Wildflower Nature Trail also winds through the wooded area of the park, giving you a glimpse of many rare flowers and plants as well as tons of wildlife. One unique thing you’ll want to make note of is that Tante Park is also home to the oldest White Oak Tree in Tazewell County!

Hike a Trail

Trail Map: Download

Tante Park’s Wildflower Trail runs along a creek bank, and past many old growth specimens of sugar maple, white ash, black cherry, and hawthorn. The southern end of the trail terminates at quite possibly the grandest white oak in Tazewell County.

Fly a Kite

One of the great things about Tante Park is that it has a wide-open space that is perfect for kite flying. Be careful not to get too close to the turns or the winds will tangle you up.

Host a Picnic

Tante Park also has two sheltered areas to set up a picnic space. Tables are first-come, first-served but a nice break if you want to make it a day at the park.

Park Safety and Preservation

To preserve the beauty of Tante Park, as well as ensure the safety and enjoyment of all park patrons, camping, hunting, use of alcohol, littering, disturbing wildlife, cutting of flowers, trees or shrubs, dogs off leash, and straying from designated trails is prohibited. The use of motorized vehicles and fires outside designated areas is also not allowed. Thank you for your cooperation.
