The Master Plan identified the Allerton Visitor Center Complex as an area of Allerton with many underutilized facilities and unique opportunities. Transforming this core area of the Park will be one of our highest priorities over the next decade. Once complete, this space will entice visitors to explore not only the physical historic space, but also allow a more intimate discovery of Robert’s vision for his gift to the University of Illinois. Inspired by nature, the arts, and sustainability, this multigenerational experience will work toward attracting a more diverse audience, creating opportunities for education and personal interaction, and understanding of the legacy of Robert and John Gregg Allerton.
