What is in Seneca?

The Village of Seneca has a lot to offer to visitors to our area. 

 

The I&M Canal State Trail provides a great adventure for nature lovers, historians, photographers, hikers, bicyclists, joggers and snowmobilers.  Visitors can follow this 61.5 mile state trail and enjoy many scenic views of the canal.

 

Seneca is located on the scenic Illinois River.  The river provides for many activities such as boating, fishing, and picturesque sight seeing.  (The sunsets can be spectacular.)

 

In addition to several outstanding marinas, Seneca also has a wonderful free public boat launch with access to the river, shelters for picnic lunches and a safe, clean dock.

 

Crotty Park has a shelter that can be reserved for family reunions, graduation parties, birthday parties, etc.  There is also a playground, soccer, and baseball field.

 

We also have numerous historical attractions such as the Hogan Grain Elevator on the I&M Canal, Seneca Area History Museum, LST Memorial in Crotty Park, the Veterans Memorial Wall at the Seneca Library.
