If you’re ready to get out and enjoy the spring weather, Oakdale Nature Preserve located at 4433 S. Cranes Grove Rd. 3 miles south of Freeport, is a place you can go to now. It’s open year-round from dawn to 10:30 p.m.
The nature preserve has beautiful, tranquil scenery which changes throughout the seasons. I recommend that you take your camera.
It’s a convenient place to go when you want to get away for the day or just need a short respite from city life without spending a lot of time on the road.
With its open and sheltered picnic tables, Oakdale is a peaceful place to enjoy a picnic.
