About Glenview Park District

The Kent Fuller Air Station Prairie and The Grove National Historic Landmark are two natural areas managed by the Glenview Park District in Glenview, Illinois. The Kent Fuller Air Station Prairie, or ASP for short, is over 30 acres of both restored and remnant prairie, and was once adjacent to the Glenview Naval Station. The Grove National Historic Landmark is over 150 acres containing wetlands, prairie, oak savannas, as well as several historic buildings used for programming. Thank you to all the visitors who are helping us with this photo project-these photos will help track the changes that happen over the years at both of these sites.
