There Are Endless Options For Outdoor Fun At This Illinois Forest Preserve

Covering the expanse of 1,151 acres, Independence Grove Forest Preserve offers visitors innumerable opportunities for some outdoor adventure and fun. What was once property belonging to a gravel quarry has been reclaimed and transformed into a recreational hub in Lake County. This park may hit its busiest peak in the summer, but there is plenty to do here all year long! Let’s have a look.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
