The Opportunity for Englewood – and Chicago’s South Side

The Englewood Line Nature Trail will provide recreational opportunities, transportation, and a connection to nature for residents of Englewood and surrounding communities. It will link growing spaces in the Englewood Urban Agricultural District and help fulfill the community’s aspirations for a safe, inviting, and peaceful space for all to enjoy.

Design of the trail can further community interests:

  • Creating a safe trail for community use.
  • Connecting a variety of uses now being planned.
  • Providing jobs via construction of the trail and through small-business development.
  • Enhancing safety and transportation access by improving the pedestrian and bicycle environment.
  • Providing a natural trail that is a unique experience in the City of Chicago.
