Just minutes from Pontiac, Dargan Park is a great place to visit. Park your car at the parking available on the street and get to walk within this well cared place.

Either you want to enjoy a sunny day while having a picnic at the areas provided, or you just want to see sculpted art while walking, then this is the place!

If you have children then you do not need to worry because there is a playground where they can spend their time and enjoy.

I loved visiting this park. It was a small park in the middle of a neighborhood. The sculptures and the story are very cool. There is also a park that kids can play on.

When I stopped here, I had every intention of heading to Joliet to see the Route 66 Museum there. I was pleasantly surprised though to find out that Pontiac, IL has a Route 66 museum, as well as other museums and 24 beautiful murals throughout the town. I was not able to see everything because of a time constraint, but I will definitely be going back to Pontiac, IL to check out everything else that I was not able to see. The murals are beautiful.

I liked it! If it's on your way it's a nice place to stop and take a little break. There's a nice park as well.

Interesting, but small. It's worth the view if you're already in the area.

Pretty little park. Interesting town. Worth the drive and the park is nice to walk for a few minutes and look at the sculptures!
