Project New Leaf: The Future of Cantigny Park
Colonel Robert R. McCormick loved his Wheaton estate and instructed that it be turned into “a public park and museum for the recreation, instruction and welfare of the people of the State of Illinois”. Cantigny Park has been Colonel McCormick’s gift to the community for over 60 years. Join us as Matt LaFond, Executive Director of Cantigny Park, talks about the park’s massive five-year rejuvenation effort, Project New Leaf.
