Minonk is an Objibwa word meaning “Good Place”. In addition to being surrounded by some of the best farmland in Illinois, Minonk is home to some of the friendliest people around. Centrally located on the I-39 corridor, Minonk is a short drive to the campuses of Illinois State University or the excitement of the Peoria River. We are surrounded by the amenities of several large cities yet have managed to maintain our small town charm.
If there is one thing we all can enjoy, it is our community parks. They are where our children go to play, our families get together for reunions, our pets come to run and neighbors go to meet. We have several beautiful community parks operated by a volunteer Parks & Recreation Board. In addition, the Millennia Group operates Millennium Park located on the north edge of Minonk.
The parks department does a wonderful job taking care of our parks to keep them enjoyable for you. It's important that we keep our parks clean. If you see someone violating park rules or vandalizing the park, contact the police department at 309-432-2341.
Parks can be reserved for special functions by contacting City Hall at 309-432-2558.
