Park Projects in Progress
A busy season of new park developments and renovations is under way. For a sneak peak of what's to come, view the PDF renderings of the parks listed below:
The popular community park on the west side of Montgomery is set to receive a new, reservable shelter and overlook on the lake, new restrooms and a permanent dock and floating pier, built adjacent to the current boat ramp. Details.
The future is set to arrive at Blackberry Farm with a uniquely innovative adventure play structure. It will feature an extensive network of climbing decks, slides, ropes and catwalk-style bridges connecting playhouses on multiple levels. Completion is expected by September.
Waubonsie Lake Park is undergoing a series of improvements that will further expand this park’s appeal – basically, taking what’s already good and making it greater! To learn more about what is to come at Waubonsie Lake Park, click here. Please pardon our dust while the parking lot is under construction and is not open to the public.
The new bike/pedestrian bridge currently being installed will shorten the gap through downtown Aurora and is part of a 75-mile trail that runs from Oswego to the Wisconsin border. It spans the west channel of the Fox River, connecting with Hurds Island, where a paved trail will run along the west edge of the island to North Avenue. Only a few city blocks remain from North Avenue to where the trail resumes at Downer Place behind Waubonsee Community College. Details.
Featuring a spacious fenced area for small dogs (under 35 pounds) and room to roam for large dogs, Gregory Island Dog Park is located on Indian Trail, just west of Route 25. The park is bordered by the Fox River on both sides. All dogs must have a Park District dog tag and rabies tag to enter the park. NEW: Order a dog tag online! Or download a Dog Park Permit Application. Dog tags are also good for Lincoln Park Dog Park.
The stylish looking bridge now spans the crossing at busy Galena Boulevard, providing safety and convenience for all trail users. Be among the first to check out this exciting upgrade - it's definitely worth celebrating! Gilman Trail bridge details.
The Open Space, Park and Recreation Investment (OSPRI) plan - funded by the 2008 referendum - has spearheaded dozens of park improvement projects, creating greater public amenities for Aurora, North Aurora and Montgomery. Read more about the investments in your community.
