The Park District asks citizens to abide by the following rules when using the trails:
- Walkers, joggers and bikers please keep to the right when using the trails.
- All dogs must be on a leash.
- Be aware of traffic approaching and behind you.
- Be aware of intersections and crossings.
- Please pick up you and your pet’s litter.
BPRD’s commitment to being a preventative healthcare leader is evident in the 75-plus miles of paved and unpaved recreational trails, 95 percent of which are kept open and usable during winter. Please check the orange Alert bar on this page to view news on trails that may be temporarily closed due to nearby construction and/or repairs.
Acquiring land for park development is a Strategic Plan focus area.
