The Millennium Reserve

Wolf Lake, Chicago, IL 60649


Millennium Reserve is both a region and a partnership. The region stretches from downtown Chicago to the Indiana border and suburban Park Forest. Encompassing diverse neighborhoods and Illinois’ southeast lakefront, Millennium Reserve has a rich cultural, industrial, and ecological history to discover. Among many exciting places, it is home to Pullman National Monument and its communities, beautiful bike trails that connect the area’s ecological gems and African American history, and local breweries and historic restaurants. To learn more about the Millennium Reserve region, please explore our Millennium Reserve Guidebook and visit our story map.
