Underwood Park History
In 1964, plans were approved for Maplewood Park, a 10-acre facility off Linden and Jersey. The project cost between $70,000 and $80,000 and took several years to complete. It included an outhouse building, multi-purpose area for basketball, shuffleboard, ice-skating and volleyball. In 1982, the park was renamed Underwood Park in honor of Robert C. Underwood, a former Illinois Supreme Court Justice and active member in the Normal community. In 2007, the Town purchased another 6 acres and expanded Underwood, connecting it to Constitution Trail.

Located at: 200 Jersey Ave.
