Event information

This walk starts at the Memorial Park Rose Garden and descends through the park on two broad staircases and eventually winds through the Dundee-Happy Hollow Historic District in each of the three walk options. Memorial Park has 7 separate monuments to veterans, in addition to the park itself, which honors WWII veterans. The 5 K has 3 Little Free Libraries and the 6 K has 5. The 10 K option etends the walk from Memorial Park into and through Elmwood Park, to the Aksarben/Elmwood park neighborhoods to the south and east of the park, in a quest to visit and additional 5 Little Free Libraries. All of the trail is on sidewalks, except for bit of crushed gravel in the center of the Rose Garden and a 4-block stretch on the 10 K on a quiet residential street.
