Prairie Path and Taft Avenue Corridor Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Illinois Prairie Path is a multi-use nature trail for non-motorized public uses that spans over 60 miles through various municipalities in Cook, DuPage, and Kane Counties. This heavily used trail brings visitors through Berkeley, Hillside, and other communities.

The Village of Berkeley, Village of Hillside, and the Berkeley Park District, in partnership with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), are working to develop a shared vision for the Prairie Path and Taft Avenue corridor to increase pedestrian and bicycle traffic along the path, attract businesses to the area, and enhance parks and open space for residents and path users.

To develop a vision for the study area, we need your help! Please use this site to share your ideas about the future of the Prairie Path and Taft Avenue Corridor.
