Bushnell Park
Bushnell is a very active park with baseball and soccer fields, horseshoe courts and playground equipment. There is park land along the Fox river with a trail system and fishing nodes. Many local families take advantage of the large shelter, with picnic tables, grills and electric, for summer picnics. The City of Burlington schedules all the sporting activities and prepares fields for use, and the County maintains the open areas.

Cliffside Park
Cliffside is one of our most well known parks because of the number of visitors camping at the 92 site campgrounds. The camping area has electric and water sites and can accommodate anything from tents to large RV's with slide-outs. There are bathrooms with showers and play areas for the campers. Many local families also use the campgrounds for "get-away" weekends to cool off and relax by the lake. For the non-campers, Cliffside offers baseball/softball fields, tennis, basketball and soccer fields as well as large shelter area with picnic tables, grills and electric. The bike trail is just across the road, so there are many ways to enjoy this northside park.
