Kiwanis Park is a 2 acre site along the riverfront at the west edge of the Oregon dam. It is close to downtown and directly behind Conover Square shopping center. The site is a popular fishing spot and viewing area. Fishing is available below and above the dam. There is a panoramic view of the Rock River Valley, which includes the Blackhawk statue. The park is also home to “From the Waters Comes My Bounty” statue, the first sculpture of the ‘Community Art Legacy Program.’ The park was owned by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources until it transferred ownership to the Park District in September 1997.
