Website | Reservations | Map

Tucked into Lake County’s most urban area is this island of green.

A surprising array of birds, wildflowers and landscapes are found here, and the amenities are clean, safe and well designed.

The preserve offers 5 miles of trails for hiking and 4 miles of trails for bicycling and cross-country skiing.

Please keep dogs leashed and on trails at all times, and pick up after them.

Learn about our off-leash Dog Parks (permit required).

Teachers can enhance their classroom work with a field trip to Greenbelt. Nature education and history programs emphasize fun and adventure, and let children take a hands-on approach to nature.

The site also is home to the Greenbelt Cultural Center, a versatile facility designed with help from the public.

The Center hosts community events and educational programs, and can be rented for private events and celebrations.
