In honor of Earth Day, Elmhurst Park District staff visited the future home of Elmhurst’s first dog park to do a site clean-up. More than two full trucks of trash and debris were cleared from the site at Old York Road. The future dog park is a Vision 2020 project. Learn more at vision2020.epd.org.
Progress on the Salt Creek Greenway trail connector has officially begun. The Elmhurst Park District’s 2019 capital budget included funds for completing the engineering, design, and construction of a 740 ft. long by 6 ft. wide asphalt trail connection in proximity to Brush Hill Road south of Butterfield Road. The current alignment at this location had trail users on the shoulder of the road and traveling against the flow of traffic.
“This project will provide a less hazardous bike route for all trail users,” said Director of Facilities Angela Ferrentino.
The Berens Sled Hill regrading project is underway. Please see the tentative construction schedule. The contractor is targeting to complete the job on or before April 26.
