Elmhurst Park District is looking for community input on what new amenities to implement to the Glos Memorial Park Expansion. (142 E. Park and Expansion site 135 Robert Palmer Dr.) The northern end of the park shall remain.
Retiring Park Board Commissioner, Doug Ennis, was recognized at the April 26, 2021 Park Board meeting for his six years of service to the board.
During his tenure, Ennis served on the Board of the Elmhurst Art Museum and People for Elmhurst Parks, as well as committee and liaison roles in Finance, Policy and Registration Management Software Ad hoc.
Glos Memorial Park has provided open space and formal gardens in downtown Elmhurst, the community’s most densely populated area, since the 1970s. In 2017, the District acquired 135 Palmer Drive, a building adjacent to Glos Memorial Park. This year, the goal is to demolish the building and parking lot, which are in poor condition, and return the area to open space for the community.
The summer brochure was released last week, which included details about East End and Smalley Pools. As a reminder, this summer will look different due to numerous pandemic-related restrictions outside of the District’s control, but both pools as well as the spray ground at The Hub will be open with reservations required. Please review some of the frequently asked questions below for more information about what you can expect at the pools this summer.
Why are things so different this year at the pools? Aren’t we past the worst of the pandemic?
The Summer 2021 Digital Brochure is now available! View information on summer programming, pools and camps! Registration will open Saturday, May 1 at 8 a.m. for residents and Tuesday, May 4 at 8 a.m. for non-residents.
Get ready for summer fun in 2021 - Make sure your EPD account is up-to-date.
5/3/21 - Please note that this open house is being moved indoors to the History Museum annex due to the rain forecast this evening. Parking will be at the History Museum across the street from Glos Park.
