    There are some major concerns of DNR closing this park. [:(]

    Of all the parks in IL to close, it shouldn't be this one. It is simply amazing. I haven't been there in years and I hope to take my husband to see it (he has never been there) this year....I am afraid of the damage the tornado has done. [:(]
