Phase I of the Kankakee Riverfront Trail was begun—and will be completed—during the Centennial. The 6.5 mile-long trail will enhance local access to the Kankakee River and connect the city of Kankakee with Kankakee River State Park. This project advances three Green Legacy goals: connecting us to our rivers and streams, completing our regional trail system and expanding neighborhood green space.
