Parks in Progress

Eola Community Center Playground

A modern-style playground with age-specific features is expected to be complete by early fall. Highlights include a small-scale water spray/splash pad and a rubberized, multi-colored surface instead of traditional mulch to provide a safer playing surface.

Site Plan

A 30-acre natural area tucked between the Fox River and Route 25, just north of Red Oak Nature Center – is being developed in phases as an outdoor educational venue. Among the new features: a shelter-styled “tree house,” skywalk, fire pit, nature-based playground and more.
