Sspooky woodsPOOKY WOODS

October celebrations can be hectic and crowded. This year, the Park District offers a seasonal alternative that can fit into your busy schedule and changeable Fall weather! Great for individuals, families, or groups. Look up. Look down. And look behind. Experience the unsettling feeling of exploring a little-known pathway enhanced for seasonal spookiness. Wide enough for buddies, flat enough for most, creepy enough for chills. Get the full details here.
