5 Things to do in Champaign, IL

by Rose Price

Champaign Public Library: This beautiful, resource rich, library is something Champaign, IL residents can be proud of. Friendly, informative staff are always available to help you. This is a truly amazing local library in a town the size of Champaign. This beautiful facility is bright, open and airy with lots of natural lighting and offers easy access parking.The meeting room is great  and you'll enjoy the small coffee area. Oh, I can't forget the awesome children's area.

The Art Theater: The Art Theater is a single screen, community art house,owned by members. The Theater provides a place to see films that major corporate distributors overlook; including a great many films that win international awards. The theater consistently shows a broad selection of art films and mainstream sleepers, that have been overlooked . This refreshing, little indie,art house screens fine films, at a time when society and big movie companies have increasingly limited movie goer's choices.  The Art Theater's liquor license, and home baked treats also contribute to a unique, enjoyable experience.

Memorial Stadium: The stadium is rich in history and tradition. The first thing you'll notice is the beautiful, old facade. The name "Memorial" Stadium comes from the nearly 200, Illinois, limestone columns. These amazing columns each contain the name of an Illinois soldier, who died in WWI. (More recently,service personnel who have died in subsequent wars, have been added.

Krannert Art Museum: Who would have guessed there would be such a cool art museum in Champaign, IL? The Krannert is a beautiful place, with easy access, on the University of Illinois campus. Whether you visit to see the eclectic range of art or to hear a concert, the Krannert will not disappoint.  Also, enjoy the espresso royal on the main level.

Hessell Park: This is a fantastic, big park, boasting roughly 27 acres of grass and  trees; just west of Kirby and S. Neil St. The park offers something for everyone. There's a nice 1/2 mile long, curved path surrounding the park, a big playground, a ball field, lighted tennis courts and more.Come out to run  walk your dog, play tennis or bring the kids to the playground. Hessell Park also offers the only splash pond in town. It is a small area with ground fountains and sprinkler tunnels that the kids will love. Oh, don't forget Jarlings Custard Cup for a nice Summer treat.
