Des Plaines Park District

Garden Plots

Garden Plots Are Available to Rent

Plant something special in spring 2020!


THE BASICS

The 20’ x 20’ garden plots are located east of Westgate Road adjacent to Terrace School between Thacker and Miller Streets. Plots will be plowed and made ready for planting as of May 1, weather permitting. In compliance with the Des Plaines Park District policy, we ask that you do not walk your dogs on the garden plots at any time. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the bike path adjacent to the garden plots. Our thanks go to Commonwealth Edison for their longstanding support of the program.
