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.


What's going on in Seneca?

Seneca always has many events going on for residents and visitors alike. Some of events that may be of interest include: Shop With A Cop Event,
Shop With A Cop Event

The Seneca Police Department will be hosting their 9th annual "Shop With a Cop" program this holiday season. The program, with the assistance of the Seneca school system will choose a number of children from the north and south campuses, along with the Seneca High School to participate in shopping with the children for gifts for their family and themselves. All the children selected will be between kindergarten and high school age (5-17). The amount each child may be given will depend on the amount of donations received. The event this year will be held on Saturday, December 16th. Each child will shop with a police officer and staff, and after shopping they will return to the police station to wrap the gifts and enjoy refreshments that have been donated by some of our local businesses. Last year this event went over well for the 33 children involved. If you feel you can help, please send or drop off your donation to the Seneca Police Department, 340 N. Cash Street, P.O. Box 27, Seneca, IL 61360. If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact Chief Ray Meglan at 815-357-1616 M-F from 6:30 am - 2:30 pm. THANK YOU in advance for your consideration to help with this wonderful event.
