The Parks

Sterling, Illinois is home to 20 unique parks. Parks in Sterling offer activities and amenities for residents of all ages.

The City of Sterling and the Sterling Park District maintain more than 100 acres of land throughout the Sterling area where residents can walk, bike, play a variety of sports, and so much more.

The most recent addition, Dogwood Acres (located in Thomas park), provides dog owners with a safe spot to let their pets run and play.
