About This Location

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! 
Restroom facilities at this location are open from approximately May 1 to October 15 (weather dependent) of each year .
The Village of Algonquin received two Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) grants in 1999 and 2004 from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) to help develop this park facility.
