The largest municipal park manager in the US adds more green spaces for Chicago residents and visitors to enjoy.

Chicago may be known as America’s “Second City,” but, it’s first when it comes to parks with the Chicago Park District being the largest municipal park manager in the country. We’re working with the Chicago Park District on a variety of projects to restore or create habitat for wildlife, provide protection from erosion, and increase opportunities for Chicagoans to enjoy nature by expanding recreational opportunities.

We delivered a range of services at over 60 natural areas within the Chicago Park District, including native flora management, invasive species management, prescribed burn management, design, construction, and restoration planning. We’re also assisting the Chicago Park District with one of their major goals—designing and constructing new natural play spaces throughout the park district. This includes the planting of native prairie, woodland, and savanna seed mixes, as well as native trees and shrubs.

Along with existing parks, we also worked on the transformation of former industrial/commercial spaces into green spaces. This included remediation of contaminated industrial sites, planning, and incorporating restoration techniques such as treating invasive species. Our native plant nursery in Walkerton, Indiana, provided a variety of plants and seed mixes used in the project.
