About

Hawthorne Park offers a peaceful, well-maintained place to stop, stretch, and enjoy a picnic. In the developed portion of the park, you'll find picnic shelters, sports fields, playground, and a community center. The park borders a riparian woodland, through which the Little Calumet River meanders, providing a quiet spot for fishing and watching birds, including downy, hairy, and red-bellied woodpeckers, and many warblers during spring migration.
