An infrastructure improvement project is taking place at Monee Reservoir. Picnic permits are available; boat rentals will be available May 1.

Ice skating is offered on ponds at Goodenow Grove Nature Preserve in Beecher and Monee Reservoir when proper conditions exist. (Note: Ice skating will not be offered at Monee Reservoir during the 2013-2014 winter season due to an infrastructure improvement project at the site.)
Ice thickness is checked daily during the winter, and the ponds are cleared of debris if the ice is sufficiently thick for skating.
To inquire whether the pond at Goodenow Grove is open for ice skating, please call 708.946.2216.
