While exploring the shoreline of two lakes north of Bloomington, plan for a picnic at any one of a handful of attractive parks along the way. The quiet rural roads between the lakes are decorated with small farms, old barns, and big spreads of cropland. Just north of the twin cities of Bloomington-Normal are a pair of scenic lakes called Evergreen Lake and Lake Bloomington. As with nearly every other lake in central and southern Illinois, these two were created by damming streams and rivers. Now the lakes serve the dual purpose of recreation spot and municipal water source. Lake Bloomington was constructed in 1929 and has a water treatment plant on its shore.
