And I would walk 500 miles… Constitution Trail winds all through Bloomington Normal. Feel like going for a walk? It’s a short walk to reach the trail. And from there… the town!

*We’re legally obligated to tell you there aren’t actually 500 miles of trail in town. But, there’s plenty for a good walk, run, or bike ride!

The only thing better than going to the park? Going to the park in your backyard. Ironwood Gardens is conveniently located adjacent to Ironwood Park. And Fairview Park and Rosa Parks Commons are both short commutes!

Located at 1920 N. Linden St.

Ironwood Golf Course

One of Normal’s public golf courses, Ironwood, is a long (golf) drive or a short (car) drive away. Built in 1990, the course is open to the public and has a 73.0 USGA rating. You can pratice your short game on our putting green before heading to the links!

Ironwood is a Roger Packard Design 18-hole public golf course that utilizes fescue grasses and maturing trees to shape fairways.
