The Elmhurst Park District worked cooperatively with the City of Elmhurst to assist with storm water management. As part of the cooperative effort, the west portion of Golden Meadows Park is being sold to the City for use as storm water detention. This portion of Golden Meadows previously hosted the garden plots. The District recognizes the value of and enthusiasm for garden plots in Elmhurst and determined that Marjorie Davis Park will be one of the new homes of garden plots beginning in the summer of 2017, with additional plots becoming available in 2018 at Wild Meadows Trace. Construction on the new plots began in April with an anticipated opening of May 1, 2017. A Park District Garden Plot is an approximately 20’x20’ plot that is plowed, rototilled, and staked by the Elmhurst Park District so you can plant, cultivate, and reap the harvest. Water taps are located at the site and are open from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. seven days per week. For more information please contact Daniel Payne at (630) 993-8940 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Marjorie Davis Garden Plot Project Updates
The garden plots at Marjorie Davis Park are open for gardening for all registered participants.
Construction on the Marjorie Davis Garden Plots has been moving slowly due to the extremely wet conditions on the site, but progress is occurring despite the circumstances.
Thursday and Friday of this week the plumber will be installing storm sewers and pipes. Once this is completed the project will then start to focus on preparing the soil, turf aisles, and fencing.
The 2017 Marjorie Davis Garden Plot Project is underway. The construction and silt fencing has been installed and the tree removal has been completed.
