37. Indian Ridge Marsh



Indian Ridge Marsh, 122nd Street, between Stony Island and Torrence Avenues — 145 acres

The goals of the recent U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Project were to improve the hydrology of this site so that the existing Black Crowned Night Heron rookery would be preserved, along with aquatic, wetland, and woodland areas, “while encouraging public access.”

This site was also featured in the detective novel, Out of Order, by community author, Kevin P. Murphy.
