If you've driven by Smalley Pool recently, you may have noticed a lot of commotion. In accordance with the 2015 capital budget, the roofs of the Smalley Pool pump room and bath house will be torn off and replaced. The pump room and bath house roofs were last replaced in 1990 and have reached the end of their useful lives. This project will preserve the integrity and improve the appearance of both buildings, and is expected to be complete by May 22, just in time for the summer pool season.

Located on six acres between Spring Road and Salt Creek, Elmhurst’s 10,000-year-old Great Western Prairie is a living time capsule of Illinois in its original condition, when most of the northern two-thirds of the state was covered in prairie. Now far less than one percent of that original grassland remains, and Elmhurst has a unique opportunity to help preserve and maintain our own section. On Saturday, April 18 at 9 a.m., volunteers will meet coordinator Keith Olson at the intersection of Berkley Avenue and the Prairie Path (between Spring Road and Route 83) to clear brush.
