5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We went right after there was snow on the ground and it was breath taking with all the trees and snow.

“Beautiful Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

We come here quite a few times each year. If you do plan on coming often, get the membership because it is not the cheapest place. Great for adults but fun activities for kids too!

“Really pretty in the summer & Fall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Nothing much else to say besides very pretty. If you like botanical gardens, this is a more natural way to enjoy Illinois. Out of the way for visitors, but worth seeing for locals.

“Glade in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This is a small slice of forest in the suburb. Great place to take the stress off for a day. Relatives live near by...you can even hear the wolves at night....in the middle of a Chicago suburb. Beautifully maintained and educational. Miles of well cared for walking trials. Also includes wonder Christmas light display in December.
