Jeremie will discuss how he, along with Chris Gladwin, launched Lemont Quarries. Lemont Quarries Adventure Park is a 300-acre outdoor playground and soon-to-be home of the tallest and largest aerial adventure course in North America. The park opens Summer 2020 at the Lemont Quarries property in Lemont, IL, just 22-miles from downtown Chicago. Lemont Quarries is the brainchild of two Chicago-tech entrepreneurs, Chris Gladwin and Jeremie Bacon – close friends who share a passion for outdoor recreation. The adventure park is being developed as a public-private partnership between The Village of Lemont, Lemont Township, and The Forge, the company behind The Lemont Quarries Adventure Park.

From ropes courses, ziplines and rock-climbing towers, to flatwater paddling, running, mountain biking, and hiking trails, our parks seek to provide a community-focused, authentic outdoor experience for urban and suburban audiences. www.lemontquarries.com
