About Us:

If you like nature, walking and a whole lot of clean, fresh air you may do yourself well to venture over to Glen Carbon's more easterly side. In a much-anticipated development, the Village has announced the completion of Phase I of its Green Space East Recreational Trails Project by far the largest and most significant portion of the development. The project spreads over a rolling, picturesque 80 acres in an area just west of Old Troy Road, east of Route 159 and in relatively close proximity to South Trace Court and the Cottonwood area. Main access points include trails at the end of South Trace Road and off the Ronald Foster Heritage Bike Trail near Oaklawn Drive.
