MWRD Summit Boat Launch Site

The Village of Summit is evaluating feedback on the potential land use of the former MWRD Summit Boat Launch Site located at 7800 Canal Bank Road.

The Village of Summit was awarded the Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program for Local Technical Assistant from the National Park Service and is currently examining the potential development of a Community Recreation Area at the Metropolitan District boat launch site along the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal. The purpose of this recreational area will be to provide opportunities for outdoor recreation and create additional community open space where residents can enjoy nature and the outdoors.
