Silver Springs State Fish and Wildlife Area
A pool of clear bubbling water sparkles like silver at Silver Springs State Fish and Wildlife Area, the host location each year for Northern Illinois Hunting & Fishing Days, nearby to the Plano Synergy Outlet Store. Majestic oaks and prairie grasslands provide a panorama of natural beauty to park visitors, including views of the Farnsworth House across the Fox River, which runs through this picturesque area. Natural prairie restoration gives visitors a feeling of the original landscape with native wildflowers, songbirds, waterfowl and upland game. Picnicking, fishing and hiking are popular pastimes in summer, with ice fishing, sledding, ice skating and cross-country ski trails available for the winter sports lover. For relaxing, exercising or just enjoying nature, Silver Springs is the perfect getaway location.
