Blackberry Farm

Aurora, Illinois, USA


  • Master planning

Project Description:

JRA, in cooperation with Upland Design, provided an overall master plan, outlining a series of enhancements for Blackberry Farm, a popular family attraction located outside of Chicago. This living history museum is set upon 54 scenic acres containing a lake, several ponds and a meandering stream. Phase I of the master plan includes infrastructure upgrades to the concession areas, events plaza and picnic area, as well a new adventure play area and a boat dock for pedal and fishing boats. Future phases may include additional interactive play areas, a climbing wall, self-powered train cars, and a small water tower themed to represent a structure from early pioneer days.
