Natural Areas

The Town of Normal has a number of parks and spaces with a variety of pollinator plants and natural areas. The Park Maintenance team has invested in preserving habitats and restoring these areas in an effort to reduce erosion, increase pollinator spaces, reduce invasive species, highlight natural beauty, and to offer contact points with nature within Town limits.

These areas are opportunities to investigate species of wildlife, explore plants, navigate creeks and trails, and get out in nature!
