Skate area, splash pad coming to Gordon Park
LA GRANGE – An above-ground skate area, a soccer field and a performance shell are part of a renovation plan for Gordon Park approved the La Grange Village Board on Monday.
Plans for improving the park date back to 2008, when the village consulted with a developer to redevelop a now-demolished YMCA facility at the park. Those plans never materialized. Five years later, the village's biggest park at last has a plan, and the renovations are scheduled to be completed by September.
Earlier this year, the project had been held up by a dispute over the transfer of a portion of land from the park district to the village. The final plans involve the transfer of a "fingertip"-size portion of land along Ogden Avenue, park district executive director Dean Bissias said.
