Lemont Lincoln Park Nursery Hike
Friday, June 1, 2013 - 07:3am (June 2 rain date) View Larger Map
Announcing a new adventure hike to the Lemont Lincoln Park Nursery from old Bluff Road north of Lemont. It will start at the parking area at the corner of Bluff Road and Cass Avenue on the south side of Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve and continue to the old Waterfall and south down to the bottom of the bluff. From there it goes west towards Lemont until reaching the site of the Lincoln Park Nursery and Lincoln Park School.
These sites were where bushes, trees, and soil were taken to build Lincoln Park in Chicago in the 1920s.
We will return the same way, back to Bluff Road and the parking area. To support the work of the Lemont Area Historical Society that sponsors the tours, a charge of $5 per person will be requested. Since the mosquitoes are now beginning to emerge, it is suggested that hikers wear long sleeve shirts and pants and bring repellent.
This annual hike is a participation in the national day of hiking by the National Trails Day.
