Where is the Illinois River Road?
Traversing both east and west sides of the Illinois River from Ottawa, 150 miles south to Havana, the Illinois River Road has spurs to the communities of Princeton and Canton. The Illinois River Road corridor has over 100 natural and historic sites and numerous unique communities located throughout its 10-county region.

The Scenic Byway is conveniently located between Chicago and St. Louis, but just far enough to get away from it all. So get off the beaten path and see what the Illinois River Road has in store for you!

Havana Riverfront Park
100 W. Main Street, Havana, IL 62644



Listing Photo Bordered by the east bank of the Illinois River this linear park possesses an ample walking trail shaded by the park's large riparian trees. On the park's bluff (at the terminus of Main Street) is an observation deck and raised boardwalk nestled in a grove of American elm, red maple, mulberry, northern catalpa, and black locust trees. Havana's Riverfront Park represents a relaxing, refreshing stop for wildlife watchers. The deck and raised walkway are perfect spots for perusing the river for Ring-billed Gulls, swallows, waterfowl, and other birds. During the summer months, keep an eye out for Chimney Swifts and Common Nighthawks as well. The large trees that populate much of the park are almost always full of Red-headed and Downy woodpeckers, Northern Flickers, Blue Jays, and American Robins.
