Mundsinger Woods

Six acres of native woodlands make up Mundsinger Woods. Nature lovers will find plant species such as perennial wildflowers, wild cherry trees, white oaks, and more. The park is named after Frederick Mundsinger, a German immigrant who moved to the area in the 19th century and used the area for firewood and cattle grazing.

Morgan Creek Prairie/Wetland

Wander along the Morgan Creek Prairie/Wetland walking paths, taking in the views of native plants and searching for animals.

Hudson Crossing Park is also located on the banks of the Fox River in Oswego, IL, and it features the Egret sculpture garden, canoe access, a concert/festival area, and more.
