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.
Lippold Park: Phase II
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.
Golden Oaks Park Improvements
Golden Oaks Park – located alongside Sullivan Road on Golden Oaks Parkway – is set to receive a series of improvements that include a newly-built picnic shelter, replacement of the current playground with agespecific equipment and play areas, a baseball backstop, a refurbished half-court basketball area and hoop and an adult fitness area.
Jericho Lake Improvements
The long-popular park on the far west side of Montgomery is set for a makeover that will bring exciting new improvements – boat dock, floating pier, an additional shelter, expanded permeable paver parking and new trails that will form a network to those in Stuart Sports Complex and along Orchard Road.
Stuart Sports Complex Expansion
To keep pace with continued growth and the demand for more athletic fields, the Park District is expanding the Stuart Sports Complex. Plans include four new ball fields with lights, 11 new soccer fields and a dog park, among many other improvements – 135 acres in all – between the south end of the current park border and Base Line Road (Route 30).
