Donald B. Johnson Riverfront Park was purchased from the Johnson family in 2019. The 10 acre property is located on the riverfront on the southwest side of Byron. A portion of the purchase was paid by a grant from the National Park Service’s Land and Water Conservation Fund, which was awarded through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The Park District is currently planning for development of the property into a neighborhood park.
