PrairieWalk Pond & Dragonfly Landing

Dragonfly Landing Playground at PrairieWalk Pond is now open to the public. The playground’s capacity is limited to 50 people.  Visitors to the playground must follow social distancing guidelines and other public health precautions in accordance with guidance provided by the Illinois Department of Public Health and Centers for Disease Control.

Please note that although the playground is open, equipment is not sanitized regularly and individuals are encouraged to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer often.

The Splash Pad remains closed due to the inability to manage the facility in a manner that would meet Restore Illinois Phase IV regulations as established by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

PrairieWalk Pond provides diverse recreational activities for people of all ages, while serving as a storm water retention basin that supports Downtown Lisle redevelopment. It is located just west of Main Street in Downtown Lisle at the intersection of Garfield Avenue and Burlington Avenue. Throughout the seasons, the colors of the prairie are on display in more than 100 varieties of grasses, flowers and trees. In 2016, the site was certified as Monarch Butterfly Waystation #14864.  Fishing is prohibited at PrairieWalk Pond. 

 The French Market takes place on Garfield Avenue (adjacent to the pond) on Saturdays from May through the end of September from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
