Founder's Story - Co-Founder of Lemont Quarries, Jeremie Bacon (1871 Auditorium 222 W. Merchandise Mart Plaza Suite 1212)
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
