BOURBONNAIS – Exciting times are ahead for local cyclists and nature enthusiasts. The Bourbonnais Township Park District has clinched a significant $200,000 grant, earmarked for the much-anticipated Perry Farm Multi-Use Trail Extension.

This funding, part of a statewide initiative announced by Governor JB Pritzker, promises to transform the local biking landscape. The Perry Farm extension won’t just elevate safety standards for cyclists and pedestrians but will also unveil captivating vistas along the Kankakee River.

“Bicycle path projects are excellent drivers of job creation and economic development, while also increasing road safety for bicyclists,” Governor Pritzker said Friday. “Illinois’ beautiful natural landscape should be accessible and safe for all to enjoy, and I’m pleased that projects like this help make that goal a reality.”

With this grant, Bourbonnais Park District is geared up to fortify connections to the bustling hubs of West Bradley and South Bourbonnais. By doing so, they aim to amplify non-motorized traffic safety and usher in increased bicycle and pedestrian movement.
