With summer around the corner, it’s time to get Romeoville parks ready for the busy season. A flurry of park improvements were approved by the Village Board, including renovation plans for Conservation Park and a playground at Discovery Park.
Conservation Park, one of the busiest in the park system, will be renovated with drainage and landscaping improvements, reconstruction of the path to ADA standards, a sanding and repainting of the shelter and fishing pavilion, and a relocated playground.
Discovery Park will receive a playground. One of the newest parks in the system, Discovery Park has soccer fields, basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, and even bean bag areas. A playground will now be added to enhance the offerings even further.
“Romeoville takes pride in its park system,” stated Mayor John Noak. “We want to be sure they remain safe and attractive places to bring our families for some outdoor fun.” There are more than 30 parks in the Romeoville park system that cover nearly 350 acres.
