Winter is a great time to enjoy the parks, whether for a casual walk through the snow looking for animal tracks or a full fledged workout with snowshoes on your boots. 

Skating

Hiking

The Levee Loop Trail is still open to hikers during the winter With the leaves off the trees you can enjoy great views of Brodhead Creek and maybe spot an eagle.  (Map )

Snow-shoeing

During heavy snow, try snow-shoeing the Levee Loop Trail or the paths at Glen Brook Golf Club.

Cross Country Skiing

You can cross country ski along the paths at Glen Brook Golf Club, just avoid the actual greens please. ( Map )

On some Saturdays during the winter the Cafe at Glen Brook Golf Club opens early, so stop in for some food or a cup of hot chocolate to warm up after the outdoor activity.
