Centennial Activities

Rock Run Greenway

Forest Preserve District of Will County

Theodore Marsh—the last unprotected gap in the nine-mile Rock Run Greenway in the Joliet-Lockport area—was acquired during the Centennial by the Forest Preserve of Will County. This acquisition achieves two Green Legacy goals: preserving regionally significant open space and completing our regional trail system. Rock Run consists of 1,200 acres of high quality wetlands and uplands interconnected by a greenway trail that forms a loop connecting to the I&M Canal Trail and the Grand Illinois Trail.
