For the love of nature, be sure to see the short-lived bluebells in bloom this week!

One of the first joys of springtime in Naperville is experiencing fields of  beautiful bluebells, a perennial herb that grows in abundance this time of year from bulbs that stay in the soil over winter. Predictably, you’ll find large blankets of bluebells along the Riverwalk and in Knoch Knolls Park.

Find bluebells at Knoch Knolls by crossing the bridge over the DuPage River and venturing into the forest along one of the many trails.
