It’s great outdoors!

The Preserve of Highland Park, celebrates nature and our place in it. The 100+ acre property includes green lawns, nature-based play areas, specialized native gardens, restored woodlands, and walking and biking trails that connect neighborhoods, downtown Highland Park, and regional biking trails. Visitors can immerse themselves in the sights, sounds and experiences of nature and outdoor play.

The Recreation Center of Highland Park, the Highland Park Senior Center and the Highland Park Golf Learning Center/Rivers Edge Adventure Golf are steps from the outdoor spaces and trails of The Preserve.

Funding for this project is provided in part by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency through Section 319 of the Clean Water Act.

The grand opening of The Preserve of Highland Park took place in June 2022. Check out this video to see the project’s history and how it progressed.
