Park: Birding, Disc Golf, Hike, Picnic, Walk
The 55-acre Rolling Knolls site was acquired by the Forest Preserves of Cook County in 2010, and was envisioned as a space for year-round outdoor recreation. One of the features is the Rolling Knolls Disc Golf Course. Meandering along the southern edge of Rolling Knolls is Poplar Creek, a Fox River tributary. The creek connects Rolling Knolls to the much larger Arthur L. Janura preserves to the east, and provides a corridor for wildlife to travel between natural areas as well as native seeds to disperse throughout the landscape. The Rolling Knolls Pavilion features a large meeting/event space that can accommodate up to 80 guests, as well as a smaller room for meetings that seat up to 20 guests. Both rooms have easy access to the outdoor patio area on the ground level, offering a beautiful view.
