Des Plaines Park District

Yates Crossing at Weller Creek


The bridge over Weller Creek, connecting Cumberland Terrace Park and Des Plaines Manor Park has been named Yates Crossing. It is dedicated to long time Park Board Commissioner Bill Yates, who served the community from May 1999 until his passing in March 2021. This is a fitting tribute to our friend and colleague, who loved Des Plaines and worked to make the park district better for all of us.
