PARKS

Several parks and a delightful museum highlight a visit to Schuyler County. Central Park in the middle of Rushville is centered by a lovely Gazebo, often a venue for community events.

West of Rushville you will find Scripps Park, bequeathed by the famous publishing family. It offers picnic areas, a childrenĠ³ playground, swimming pool, softball and tennis areas, a large community building for special events, two beautifully renovated historic cottages for overnight visits, and an 18 hole Golf Course open to the public.

Just south of Rushville, Schuy-Rush Park boasts a large lake for fishing and boating, well equipped camping facilities, plus a children's playground and ball field.

Weinberg-King State Park in the northwest corner of the county features over 700 acres perfect for camping, horseback riding, nature appreciation, hunting, and fishing.

Anderson Lake, a floodplain lake of the Illinois River was once a famous private shooting ground. It is now a state owned hunting and fishing area as is the Sanganois State Fish and Wildlife Area, accessible only by boat, which is shared by Schuyler, Cass, and Mason counties.
