Walton Island Park

Walton Island, located just south of the Elgin Dam on the Fox River in downtown Elgin was created in the WPA program of the 1930's. It was dedicated to the City by the Izaak Walton League. The 4.5-acre parcel provides walking paths, fishing opportunities and a pavilion shelter for special events. The gazebo is an excellent spot to hold a wedding ceremony or take wedding photos.
