About This Location

***Cornish Park is CLOSED due to the Flood Warning on the Fox River. Access to the park is prohibited until further notice.***

Cornish Park is a 2.43-acre park located next to the Fox River. It's home to Algonquin's signature Cornish Park clock tower. It also houses many historical markers and a few buildings that tell the history of Algonquin. Even its name is historical--Dr. Andrew Cornish was one of Algonquin's earliest settlers. The park has many attractive features: a playground, walking path, fishing spots, beautiful view of the river, and a gazebo available for rental by completing the application online. The park is located just east of Main Street, so there are always good stores to hit on your way to, or from, the park! Not only that, but a quick hop across Algonquin Road will bring you to another of Algonquin's parks--Riverfront. Think winter may freeze your plans? Nope! Come down for ice skating on the artificial rink.
