2 acres




Owned by the Park District within the City of Prospect Heights. Historical land survey notes, 1957 aerial topography maps, and 1938 and 1960 satellite imagery indicate that the area was prairie mixed with wet prairie. Following settlement, the area was in agricultural use prior to acquisition by the Park District.


Local area residents reached out to the Prospect Heights Park District and PHNRC requesting that the area be converted into a natural area. After the Park District approval of such a conversion, PHNRC has been working strictly in an advisory position to help the residents with this conversion. PHNRC has offered knowledge, resources and time to help the residents of Tully Park.
