Crystal Lake Park District offers wagon rides

CRYSTAL LAKE – From now until Nov. 3, families and groups can celebrate autumn with a Crystal Lake Park District wagon ride and good times around a campfire.

The wagon ride goes into Sterne’s Woods, located north of Veteran Acres at 5617 Hillside Road. The tractor-drawn wagon ride takes up to 20 participants into the deep woods. Afterward, they will enjoy time around a campfire. 

With groups of 21 to 40 participants, half the group will ride while the other half enjoys the campfire and vice versa.

Groups can supply food, such as snacks and items that can be cooked on a stick over a fire, but no alcohol is allowed.  

The rides are available Monday through Sunday evenings, and Saturday and Sunday during the day. No rides will be available Oct. 14.

The cost for a 45-minute ride for 20 riders is $75. The cost for 21 to 40 riders, with two 30-minute rides, is $115.

Reservations should be made at least a week in advance at the Park District Administrative Office, 1 E. Crystal Lake Ave., Crystal Lake.

Fees are due at that time. No refunds will be given for cancellations received on same day as the hayride. Organizations of 20 or more people must sign a waiver prior to the day of the hayride.
