Thank You, Lake Bluff!
We deeply appreciate the community's support of your Park District. We want to thank all of the community members who supported the referendum, especially the hundreds of residents who joined our citizen committees and task forces to help make this happen. We are very excited for the opportunity to begin repairing and improving your parks and facilities.
- Repairing the aquatic facility and replacing the wading pool, a favorite of families with young children
- Improving accessibility to Sunrise Beach, including upgrading the steep steps to the beach, and renovating the restrooms
- Updating Artesian Park by replacing the playground equipment, repairing cracks in the heavily used tennis courts, replacing the walking path and the field house roof
Since the passing of the referendum in November, the Park District has been developing a plan and timeline to implement upgrades and repairs. The Park District has retained FGM Architects for design of the Beach bathrooms and Aquatic Facility. By March, the Park District will be applying
for state permits for the Aquatic Facility which may take five to six months for
approval. Therefore, the Aquatic Facility construction may not occur until late
August. We Park District are hoping to renovate the beach bathrooms and
replace the two stair cases leading to the beach by June, pending permits and weather.
