Swanson Park Recreation Path Description

Swanson Park Recreation Path is sometimes known as the Cherry Valley Path as it's located in the Village of Cherry Valley on the outskirts of Rockford in northern Illinois. The paved path travels along a tree-lined creek through picturesque open space and is within easy reach of housing developments.

The trail offers good birdwatching opportunities; keep a look out for red-tailed hawks, Canada geese, and red-winged blackbirds. It continues along Southeast Community Park, past a few small ponds, and under the busy US 20 Bypass. From the tunnel, you can follow street signs to connect to the Baumann Park Recreation Path.
