Butterfly Park

April 12 - June 30

This year, Downtown Crystal Lake has added a bit of whimsy and cheerfulness to Depot Park, which has been re-named "Butterfly Park".  We've added hand-painted wood butterflies which were decorated by community members.  The butterflies have been hung from the trees and gazebo.  This fabulous display shows the community's creativity and helps to usher in all of nature’s beautiful spring colors. The butterflies are on display through the end of June. Thanks for supporting Downtown Crystal Lake.
