Greene Valley Forest Preserve offers plenty of wide-open prairie.
Greene Valley is a popular destination for local equestrians.
In the trees at the edges of the prairie, you may see hawks watching for prey on the ground.
With all the development in the surrounding area, this forest preserve would seem to be an unlikely prospect.
