Windmont Park, located at 349 Beach St. South, offers a wide variety of activities and facilities. You’ll find a softball field, 2 regulation tennis courts and 2 full playgrounds.
New to the playgrounds in 2018 are a wheelchair accessible swing and a generation swing both donated to the park by the Kewanee Elk’s Club. Thank you to the Elk’s Club for working with the Kewanee Park District to help make the parks a fun place for everyone to enjoy!
In addition to the amenities above, there is a walking path with extra walking/workout stations that surrounds the pond to help get a good cardiovascular workout in. Visitors can also just enjoy the wonderful view on one of the many benches or swings surrounding the pond. For you anglers, enjoy fishing at the pond and off of the newly built dock. State of Illinois fishing regulations apply.

ANNUAL LIGHTING OF WINDMONT PARK
The Annual Lighting of Windmont Park is typically held on the first Sunday in December. The night’s festivities will begin with the Annual Lighted Christmas Parade beginning at 5:00pm including a special visit from Santa. Northeast Park will also be decorated for the season. An additional group of volunteers has stepped forward to light up another park. Displays at Northeast Park can be enjoyed by either walking through the park or driving through. (Please keep in mind that Northeast Park is a one way with the entrance being at the south end of the park). All of the time and decorations to make Windmont and Northeast so beautiful each Christmas season are donated by local citizens and businesses. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them all for their hard work and dedication to this huge project each winter. Those volunteers allow the citizens of Kewanee and surrounding towns to enjoy not only the lighting displays but the spirit of what the Christmas season is… Good will and Peace toward men.
