New Award for Wild Mile Floating Eco-Park

The Wild Mile Floating eco-park in Chicago wins a new award and takes a leap forward.

Watch this short video to learn more about the project and the exciting new phase to be launched in 2020 that will include floating boardwalks and a floating classroom.

From industrial river to living water park

On September 25th the American Planning Association awarded the Wild Mile a strategic plan award for making great communities happen.

High five to everyone involved!

After 2 years of hard work and the creation of new Floating Ecosystems on the Chicago River the project is now reaching its most exciting phase.  2020 is set to be a landmark year as the Wild Mile visionary mile long urban waterway park launches its 3rd phase of installation.  This next phase of work will include accessible sections of ecosystems with floating boardwalks and outdoor classroom space.  

Special thanks to our incredible partner in Chicago Urban Rivers who is dedicated to transforming the Chicago River into an urban wildlife sanctuary and to all the many organisations that support the Wild Mile.
