A Park with a Legacy

Gallant Woods Park owes its existence to the generosity of local citizens. Charlotte Gallant donated 83 acres of woods, an anonymous donor funded an additional 101 acres, and the Park District purchased 47 more acres. Since opening to the public in 2005, the park has become a cherished community asset.
