Have You Tried Our New Benches?

As you check out winter activity in the Preserve, you can rest and observe from three new benches provided by the Chicago Park District.

After three years of tireless advocating by the PAC and community members, we finally have new benches at three locations.  

And the benches are wooden and unobtrusive to blend into the environment, just as we envisioned.  

You can now rest a bit as you walk around the pond, go out to the east overlook, or stroll through the oak woods. Rest quietly by yourself or invite others for a chat.
