River Island Park
River Island Park was “Dedicated to past community leaders for the enjoyment of future generations” on August 12, 2003 by the Star Prairie Fish & Game. This park is along the Apple River in the Village of Star Prairie. The park has a walking path along the river with park benches along the way. There is an existing foundation which supported a pre-1860 grist/flour mill that memorial stones of past community members have been placed. An arched bridge crosses a spring fed creek that runs into the Apple River. You may rent the 30’ x 40’ shelter for your event from April through October. It has 6 double electrical outlets, 14 picnic tables under the shelter and two large charcoal post grills just outside the shelter. There is one more small charcoal post grill along the path on the river. Reservations for the upcoming year will start the first working day of the calendar year.

Saratoga Springs Park
25 acres with a brook and natural springs running through it, three bridges to cross, a pine plantation and a maze of walking trails make-up Saratoga Springs Park. This unique park was donated to the Village of Star Prairie by Margaret Lyngass in 1989 in memory of her late husband Matt. It is located approximately a ¼ mile down Saratoga Avenue from STH 65 on the south side of the road. Some of history that remains in this park are a clay crock in the spring brook used for food storage, an old hotel foundation, car drive shafts used as fence posts and part of a dam that held spring water back for recreation.
