I like the long walks easy hikes out here but not full of nature like I expected. But it doesn't stop me from coming back yearly. Spring / fall this place is beautiful lots of memories with my daughter .

It was a nice little hike especially for being so close to town

Carpenter Park is nothing fancy but for central Illinois hiking it's not bad. Some trails down to the Sangamon River bluffs are even kind of hilly. This time I hiked west across the tracks into the Gurgen Nature Preserve which also has some trails. It's not listed but is directly west of Carpenter Park. I wouldn't hike Riverside. It's more for driving through and stopping to fish.
