Hi everyone! This is Eddie K, Your host and photographer here at Eddie's Railfan Page.
At last....Wintertime is finally over! Alright Yeah!
With plenty of warmer weather and sunshine to be had in the greater Chicagoland area, it's "Back To The Parks" for me. Here I am enjoying a fun lunchtime outdoor roller blading session, at West Park in northwest suburban Des Plaines Illinois. This park has it all. Theres a playground for the children, a basketball court, a baseball field, the well maintained asphalt exercise path for jogging, bicycling, walking or inline skating...Heck! Theres even the adjacent Union Pacific Railroad's former Chicago & NorthWestern freight only cut off line, which sometimes finds heavy frequent transfer freight trains passing through for all the railfans out there as well.
West Park is located along the east side of Wolf Road, between Dempster Street and Golf Road.
It is a fun family place to visit.
