Event Details

The Forest Preserve District of Cook County recently launched a process to create a Recreation Master Plan, and we would like your input. The Recreation Master Plan will provide the District with a blueprint for how to enhance existing recreation opportunities and identify new ones compatible with our mission. The District has over 68,000 acres, offering a wide variety of recreation opportunities including hiking, biking, fishing, birding, golfing, skiing and more.  We are hosting a series of hour-long focus groups throughout the county. In addition to the focus groups, we are conducting a public survey and formed an advisory committee led by our Board of Commissioners.
