There is nothing better than going on a walk in Lake Forest, especially in the Summer and Fall. Join Lake Forest Parks and Recreation with our GO Lake Forest events, a movement in partnership with the Lake County Health Department to promote healthy living through walking. We’ve planned some amazing walks for these next few months, so remember to save the dates.

  • On July 23, walk with us and see an incredible fire truck demonstration at Fire Station #2. This exciting walk is fun for the whole family! Meet at Everett Park pavilion at 10:00 am for a 1-mile round trip walk; no registration is necessary.
  • Interested in architecture? The Lake Forest College walk and tour on September 5 highlights the beautiful and historic buildings on their college campus. Meet at Patterson Hall at 10 am to explore the campus and learn more about Lake Forest College’s rich history.
  • On September 19, explore the Jean and John Greene Nature Preserve with Lake Forest Open Lands. This nature walk will take you through rare ravine and bluff communities, perfect for a peaceful and beautiful walk. Registration is required.
  • Take a walk through the Lake Forest Cemetery on October 3 and October 17 to learn more about the history of our local cemetery. Registration is required and may be canceled due to services.

The goal of GO Lake Forest and GO Lake County is to improve the health of Lake Forest residents through the simple act of walking. To learn more and register, please visit https://lfparksandrec.com/go-lake-forest.

We look forward to walking with you this Summer and Fall!
