  • A new state-of-the-art playground boasting a variety of inclusive equipment, including a music area, climbing apparatus, a modern teeter-totter style quad, slides, ramps and several attractions designed to inspire creativity, discovery and open-ended play
  • Two pickleball courts fully dedicated to the popular sport
  • Picnic area and pavilion

The new playground and renovations were made possible by a$312,600 Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) matching grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
