About This Location

Merrill Pioneer Park is a 1.93 acre park located at 1250 Getzelman Terrace. It is a small neighborhood park which features a picnic shelter, two playgrounds, a basketball court, benches, and pathways. The park has historical significance as it was once the site of a natural spring which provided water to the Village.

The Village of Algonquin received a Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) grant in 1998 from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) to help develop this park facility.
