Playground Replacements

The Park District has budgeted to replace two playgrounds, located at Brookmeadow Park and Sandalwood Park. With feedback from the residents, the equipment designs and color choices have been selected.  The Board will approve and award the final design this spring. Weather permitting, the projects will begin this spring and completed by early June.

Splash Pad Improvements Slated for 2021

The splash pad at Commissioners Park was installed in 2005 and has been a great way to cool off in the summer months.  The water source for the splash pad is a dedicated well which provides an economical water source. The water from the deep well is cold water and it has a high iron content. To improve the water quality, the Park District plans to install a recirculation system to the splash pad. The iron will be filtered out, then the water will be treated and held in an underground tank. The splash pad surface is due for replacement and will be done as part of the project. The District hopes to refresh several of the features on the splash pad.  The projected is slated to be done at the end of the 2021 operating season.
