Park Snapshot - Raintree Park B

All you Harry Potter fans will love the Castle themed playground at Raintree B Park. The park is located at 872 Prairie Crossing Drive on south end of Yorkville.  The playground is designed for children ages 5-12 and is wheel chair accessible. The playground area features a draw bridge and a sitting area with king and queen chairs. Take your seat at the knights of the round table under the shelter to cool off or have a snack. This park has a walking trail with a group of workout stations along the way. It also features a baseball field and sled hill. This Park has off-street parking made of permeable pavers that was installed by a local youth group.  Adjacent to the parking lot are the City of Yorkville’s only lighted tennis courts. These tennis courts are named “Collman Courts” in memory of Jeffrey Dwayne Collman. Jeffrey was a victim of the attacks on the World Trade Center September 11, 2001. He was aboard American Airlines flight 11 and was a member of the Yorkville High School Class of 1977.
