On July 23, 2013, Mayor Jim Daley, Parks & Recreation Committee Chairwoman Trustee Marcia DeVivo and Trustee Sharon Sweas were joined by Village staff members and Parks and Recreation Committee member Dale Jansen at the official groundbreaking ceremony for the Erin Hills Park Site. The Village’s newest park will cover approximately 1.5 acres and will have colorful playground equipment, a gold putting green and a small picnic shelter. The park is anticipated to be built and open to the public by the end of 2013.

The cost for this project is approximately $378,000.00, of which $110,900.00 will be applied from the Open Space and Lands Acquisition and Development Grant (OSLAD), received from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.  The remaining balance will be paid from the Village’s Parks and Recreation Fund.
