Do you want a pool? A walking path? A new playground? Help plan the future of this great park.
The Des Plaines Park District has scheduled the second of two Public Forums to gather community input on possible renovations to Arndt Park. The meeting will be held at the Arndt Park Fieldhouse, 1990 White Street, on Tuesday, November 26, from 6:15–7:45pm.
Options for renovations include building a new outdoor pool, updating the existing playground, constructing a walking path, and adding other amenities to the park. Funding for these projects will depend on future grant opportunities.
“Listening to the community and being aware of their ideas for what’s needed in their neighborhood is the first step in the process”, said Don Miletic, Executive Director. “We have reviewed the site for future amenities, but we have not set a timeline for any renovations. These forums are being held to start the conversation about the future of Arndt Park, and we hope they are well attended.”
Park district administrators, staff members, and Park Board Commissioners will be at both meetings to take part in the discussions and answer questions.
