Spanning 37 bridges and reaching 20 feet in the air, Chicago's next great park will stretch three miles across Chicago's Northwest Side from the Chicago River to Logan Square. Learn firsthand how the proposed trail will transform an abandoned railroad viaduct into an oasis for walkers and bike riders. Friends of the Bloomingdale Trail will highlight community efforts to champion the trail, steps the city of Chicago is taking to make the park a reality, and examples of similar projects in New York and Paris. Presented by the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation and Friends of the Parks. This lecture is free and open to the public.
