Centennial Activities

Fox River Trail

City of Aurora

One of the Burnham Plan Centennial principles for green infrastructure is to connect us to our rivers and streams. Another Green Legacy goal is to complete our region’s trail system. Aurora’s downtown development plan will accomplish both through the creation of RiverEdge Park that will close a downtown gap and complete an uninterrupted 60-mile trail. Great progress has been made during the Centennial toward the closing of the last gap in this green-infrastructure trail that runs the length of Kane County, and through McHenry County to Wisconsin.
