Coming Soon… Suburban Soles!

Back for another year, Suburban Soles is a walking program being planned for group hikes to Grant Park along with a speaker presenting various topics while passing through the park. Dates have yet to be finalized, but will likely be a Sunday morning in May, June, July and August. Stay tuned. We will post speaker information and specifics as they are available.


Spring Beach Clean Up

The Friends of Grant Park areĀ grateful for the great participation from the community for our Beach Clean up.

Saturday, April 21st, 9 am to noon

We had 18 participants, and collected a total of 122 lbs. of trash. We recycled most of the glass bottles, aluminum cans and a sizable amount of plastic bottles. Alas, we did not collect any rays of sunshine…
