Hidden away in the South Suburbs of Chicago one can find a public park with the strange name of "the Harry 'Bus' Yourell Off-Stream Aeration Pool." While the name conjures up visions of stagnant waters rife with mosquitoes and algae, it is in fact one of the most picturesque and popular public areas on the south side.

A series of off-stream waterfalls have been constructed along the Chicagoland waterways to improve the water quality. This is one of those facilities. The "Harry 'Bus' Yourell Off-Stream Aeration Pool's" park-like setting attracts wedding parties for photo shoots, bike riders, joggers, and anyone who likes to just relax by the water's edge.

On any given day, you can find someone reading a book beneath a shade-giving Weeping Willow, strumming a guitar in time with the water fall's natural music, or just walking along a shady path.

The entire area is man-made, and features several waterfalls, two picturesque bridges, and a Greco-Roman inspired patio flanked by two rows of large columns that overlooks the water. Other features include wooded groves, lagoons and a golf course. You'll find it located along the Calument-Sag Channel between Harlem and Ridgeland Avenues, Worth, IL.
