West Ridge Natural Area opens on North Side

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicagoans have a new park to enjoy on the city's North Side after Mayor Rahm Emanuel Sunday helped to cut the ribbon on the 20.6-acre West Ridge Natural Area.

The wooded park and nature trail were carved out of an unused section of Rosehill Cemetery.

A federal grant helped to pay for the restoration project.
