Now that the weather is heating up, if you're looking for fresh air and some nice shade, try Blair Park, located at 1406 South Broadway Avenue, just south of Urbana Middle School.
Established in 1944, Blair Park features 11-acres that includes mature shade trees.
People can walk on paved paths and enjoy plenty of green grass. People can also play tennis on lighted courts, but be sure to observe social-distancing rules.
The Rourke Shelter is available on a first come, first served basis. The flower bed beautifies the park and athletic fields host plenty of competitions (when safe after COVID-19).
Also, be sure to find out more about the plans to upgrade Blair Park.
Be safe, but be sure to get out and enjoy warm, sunny weather.
