The reservoir offers a spacious place for bass fishing from the shoreline, biking and walking on paved trails around the lake and picnicking by the gazebo.  Some seasonal precautions are advised.

Named to honor civic leader Marjorie Osborne, an advocate of water resource management, the park is located just west of the Public Safety Center along Aurora Ave.

When digging into the history of Osborne’s local leadership, interested residents will learn that in June 1972, a referendum caused the dissolution of Elementary District 78 and High School District 107 and the formation of a 32-square-mile Community Unit School District 203 that exists today. Osborne ended up being elected on Aug. 12, 1972, to serve the new district with Daniel Butler, Mary Lou Cowlishaw, John Dahlberg, Dean Davis, Wilma Reschke and Andrew Wehrli.

In the mid to late 1980s, Osborne, a former member of the Naperville Plan Commission, also served as president of the local preservation society.
