Why is this project being developed?
Studies show that communities and individuals benefit positively from being physically active, and from exposure to nature and green space. Just imagine parents, grandparents, or caregivers utilizing the fitness equipment while maintaining eye contact with their children who are enjoying the sensory garden. Or using either the 2 – 5-year-old or 5 – 12-year-old playgrounds while protected from the sun underneath the shade structure that is strategically placed allowing patrons to view the playgrounds, garden, or the lake.
How is the project being funded?
The estimated $1.4 million project will be funded, in part, with $400,000 from an Illinois Department of Natural Resource (IDNR) Open Space Land Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) Grant. The Park District’s capital improvement budget will fund the balance.
