PARKS

AND RECREATION Local municipalities maintain numerous municipal parks, as does Homer Township, which oversees seven sites throughout the area. Township residents utilize athletic fields, picnic areas, playground equipment, ball fields, walking paths, fishing holes and plenty of open space at area parks. In addition, the Forest Preserve of Will County offers sites in the Township. Homer Glen plays host to the 441-acre Messenger Woods Nature Preserve, a beautiful, forested area that draws nature enthusiasts, hikers, cross-country skiers, picnickers and campers. It is the first property purchased by the Will County Forest Preserve in 1931 chosen for its pristine beauty. The Township is also home to the expansive Messenger Marsh Preserve, which features a multi-use trail, a dog park and a picnic shelter. The Spring Creek Greenway runs

through both preserves, offering even further opportunities for recreation, ecotourism and education. Homer Township residents also have ready access to the parks, facilities and programming of the Lockport Township
