The Park District will be holding a virtual community meeting to revisit the Maple Park Master Plan. This site plan was reviewed in 2013 and improvements were completed in 2016. The improvements included rehabbed ballfields and amenities; a new playground and picnic pavilion; comfort station improvements; new tennis court surface with pickleball stripes; and, walking path loops in the park. The purpose of this meeting is to gather feedback to the new amenities and provide an update on the status of the Maple Park site plan.

The District began a major capital project planning and improvement program in 2005 in response to a voter approved referendum increasing the property tax rate for system-wide park renewal. Since 2005, master site plans have been developed for all 18 parks. Plans have also been developed for dog park locations and to determine the historical significance of four of the District’s recreation centers. Park renewal projects began in 2006 focusing on a balanced approach. Site plans were implemented in phases so that park renewal funds could be spread out amongst parks throughout the community.

Since the passing of the 2005 referendum, major park renewal projects have been completed at most park sites with the support of over $6 million in grant funds. Read more about our current park and facility improvements. Detailed information about the District’s Capital Improvement Plan for future park renewal projects is available in the 2023-2027 CIP.

Continued investment in our parks and facilities is critical to the District’s mission. The Park Board’s policy states that each park site plan will be revisited and updated within a 10 year period. The Park District is in the process of revisiting each park site plan per this policy in order to identify additional park amenities desired by our residents, to budget strategically for these improvements and to be prepared for grant opportunities.

If you have questions or would like to provide feedback on park plans currently in progress, please contact Chris Lindgren, Superintendent of Parks & Planning.
