Des Plaines Park District

Arndt Renovations 2020

The Arndt Park Fieldhouse, 2020

In January, 2020, the park district applied for a PARC Grant to help fund the construction of a new outdoor pool and to make major renovations to the 1950s era fieldhouse at Arndt Park. We received a great deal of input from residents at two public forums (Nov 9 and 26, 2019), and via more than 500 responses to our subsequent Parks & Pools Survey (emailed and published online in December, 2019).

As part of the grant requirements, concept drawings were created and submitted with the application. Now, we wait. Information about the status of the grant will be posted on our website and social media. If you have questions about the project, please send them to

If you would like to provide your input the Parks & Pools survey is available here.
