24. John Beniac "Beans" Greenway


John Beniac “Beans” Greenway, 3925 E. 104th Street

Named for a long-term steward who, in the 1970s, began the cleanup along what had once been the Penn Central Railroad line, the greenway is one mile of the 10-mile trail from Calumet Park to the forest preserves, and a link in the 475-mile Grand Illinois Trail.

The Space houses a volunteer-built arboretum.
