"I invite you to experience our hometown atmosphere as you stroll and shop in our beautiful and quaint downtown. We are also fortunate to have 15 developed parks inside the village limits. These facilities provide for the recreational needs of our community. Antioch's newest park is the William E. Brook Wetland Sanctuary and Entertainment Center which is located in our downtown area. This 9-acre area includes an educational wetland sanctuary with a boardwalk, walking path, interpretive nature signs, two ponds and the entertainment center. The Village of Antioch's 'It's Thursday' concerts are held at the entertainment center and the park area is also the location for Antioch's 'Taste of Summer', carnivals, craft fairs and special events throughout the year. These events are sponsored by the Village of Antioch, Antioch Chamber of Commerce and Industry and other organizations of our community."
