A Huge 300-Acre Adventure Park Compound Is Opening Outside Of Chicago

May 10, 2021

We all need to work to live, but play and exercise are far more important for our mental well-being. That’s why we try to do our best to get outside and adventure whenever we can. And that just got a whole lot simpler for anyone living in the greater Chicago area because The Forge at Lemont Quarries is opening this summer.

Located just a short drive southwest from downtown Chicago, The Forge is a massive 300-acre chunk of historically-significant land in a former quarry that has been completely renovated into a massive adventure park. That includes a huge range of available activities including kayaking, rock climbing, hiking and MTB trails, fishing, ziplines, and more. But the star attraction is undoubtedly the record-setting aerial challenge area — a three-tower ropes course (the largest on the North American continent) that looms over the landscape at heights of up to 120 feet. The gargantuan compound is also set to feature a children’s area, concessions, and even an outdoor amphitheater where attendees can see bands play live. Check out The Forge’s website for more information.
