Lake Ellyn Park Path Improvements and New Signage Path improvements were completed on the south end and east side of the lake. A new path along the west side of Lake Ellyn Park, parallel with Lenox Road, was added in partnership with Village of Glen Ellyn. In addition, new landmark, informational and interpretive signage was installed in the park, thanks to an anonymous donation. Tesla & Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Visitors to Sunset Pool and Maryknoll Park can now charge their electric or Tesla vehicles free of charge for up to 2 hours, thanks to charging stations provided by Tesla. Churchill Park Access Road The access road at Churchill Park was begun to be rebuilt. Completion was delayed due to weather conditions and will be completed in Spring 2019. Ackerman SFC Interior Improvements Four (4) additional basketball goals were installed on Court 2 and new cardio equipment was added in the Fitness Center. In addition, new graphics were installed in the lower level hallway, party room, and in the indoor turf area. Main Street Recreation Center & President’s Park Playgrounds The playgrounds located at Main Street Recreation Center and President’s Park were replaced in 2018. Both playgrounds were over 20 years old and, due to age and popularity, had begun to fall into disrepair. The District once again collaborated with Kids Around the World, who removed the President’s Park playground and will repurpose the old equipment to be used in a less fortunate community.
