The Village of Lake Zurich, located in southwestern Lake County, is home to the sandy beach of Henry J. Paulus Park. This park is a popular visitors destination, as well as a favorite gathering spot for local residents featuring a picnic area, playgrounds, beach, athletic field, concert stage and more. Held at the lakefront each year is the Fourth of July fireworks show and the Lake Zurich Area Triathlon. Another Lake Zurich favorite is the long-running annual Alpine Fest held in mid-July. It's a family oriented event with carnival rides, music and a parade. Rock the Block, a downtown street festival which draws over 4,000, is an annual event that occurs each fall. For a fun day at the beach, bring the family to Paulus Park. Check out an assortment of local food options including Beelow's Steakhouse featuring outdoor dining.
