Concrete Picnic Tables

We will be installing 3 Concrete Picnic Tables at Atten's Landing this summer.
Thanks to a Grant from the Freeport Community Foundation, Freeport, Illinois.
This is an exposed aggregate concrete table, which weighs over 1,100 pounds.  These beautiful tables will be placed on concrete slabs and can survive flooding.

There is no ramp at Atten's Landing.
Just pick your best launch/take-out spot on the dirt river bank.

There is a small, broken down dam on
The Pecatonica River at the Pecatonica Sumner Park.
You  'SHOULD'  portage around the dam on the north side
 or take out before the dam.

There is a concrete ramp within the
Winnebago County Fairgrounds, enter gate #2
upstream from the dam.
There is a concrete ramp in
 Pecatonica Sumner Park, located next to
the fairgrounds on the Pecatonica River
just below the dam.
Sumner Park address is:  230 West 1st Street, Pecatonica, IL  **
