The Heritage Park Plan is a vision that weaves together an eight-mile corridor of green infrastructure features along the Des Plaines River and Illinois and Michigan Canal from Isle a la Cache (135th Street) through Lockport and into downtown Joliet. This plan advances the Green Legacy goal of connecting us to our rivers and streams. Another part of the plan meets the Green Legacy goal of preserving regionally significant open space through this year’s opening of Lincoln Landing.
