About the Park

Citizens Park is a 45-acre park located off of Northwest Highway and Lake Zurich Road in Barrington. The park was the site of the old Jewel Tea Company. This award-winning park was officially dedicated in 2007 and has continued to be a very popular setting for people to rent the facilities, relax by the waterfall, walk the trails and enjoy passive recreation.

Citizens Park was the winner of 7 different awards, including the 2007 Governor’s Hometown Award, 2007 Daniel Flaherty Park Excellence Award, 2007 Illinois Association of Park District’s Partnership Award, 2007 Masonry Award, and 3 awards from the 2007 Council of Barrington Garden Clubs. The Barrington Park District also worked closely with the Lake County Forest Preserve to connect their property to the Barrington Park District. The result is a beautiful bike/running trail that twists through Cuba Marsh and then connects to Citizens Park. This has become a favorite site for dog owners and 5K enthusiasts.
