Connect Glencoe: Old Green Bay Trail Linear Parks

Connect Glencoe will activate a series of linear parks along Old Green Bay Road. The stretch of land is 0.53 miles (approximately 2,800 feet). The trail will be 10-feet wide with a crushed limestone surface. The overall design was created to accommodate a variety of users, ages, and abilities. It will act as a spine to a recreational multi-use trail that connects to an overall 9-mile trail in four villages.  

The project will connect five separate parks with a meandering path that takes walkers, runners, and bikers through an urban garden of mature trees. The trail will connect users to various gardens, fitness equipment, a new playground, an interactive water feature, a sculpture, as well as downtown businesses, the lakefront, and the train station.
