Located on the south side of 151st Street between Cedar and Gougar Roads. The park is a component of the Trantina Farm, which is the first parcel to be developed as part of Homer Township’s Open Space Program. Funding was made possible in part with an OSLAD Grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The Board and Trantina Farm Committee have established the posted rules and provided waste receptacles for park users. The southern portion of the Trantina Farm site is about 20 acres with the Dog Park comprising about 2 acres. The canine park is fenced and divided in two sections: one for smaller dogs less than 15" at the shoulder or 30 lbs. or less and the other for larger dogs. Parking, benches, a pavilion and a mowed, looped trail surrounding the Dog Park are available for horses, dogs and humans. The view from the trail offers wonderful vistas of the rolling terrain and wildlife. While the southern part of Trantina Farm site caters to our domestic friends, the northern approximate 30 acre portion is better suited for humans offering a playground, picnic area, limestone trail, restroom, fire pit, interpretive center, gardens, native prairie restoration, wildlife viewing and historical buildings.
