Visit Fred Winters Park A passive park in memory of Pastor Fred Winters located at the end of Duke Drive off West Main Street.
Fred Winters Park is a 5.5 park south of Blackburn Terrace Subdivision in the Village of Maryville, Illinois. The majority of the property has been owned by the Village for years and was formerly used as a sewer lagoon site prior to the interceptor sewer construction in the 1970's. The major feature of the park is its service as a trailhead to the MCT Schoolhouse Trail. The park includes a parking lot with an adjacent 12 foot by 7 foot restroom, bike racks, trash receptacles and a park bench were also included in the area surrounding the parking facility.
From the parking lot, a 0.20 mile 8 foot wide concrete bike trail connects to the MCT Schoolhouse Trail. Additional amenities include 2 16-foot gazebos, each with picnic tables, BBQ grills and trash receptacles. Each gazebo is accessed by paved walkways connecting to the bike trail. A small play area with a swing set, benches and a glider swing and a meditation garden area are also key features of the recreation area.
