Park Palooza

August 20, 2022 - 5:00pm to 9:00pm

End the summer on a high note! Join Elmhurst Park District in Berens Park from 5-9 p.m. for family games, music on the lawn and a beer garden. Performing on stage will be Gen Fuze (5-6:30 p.m.) and The Student Body (7-9 p.m.).

Annual tree planting will bring environmental benefits and shade to the parks

At their August 8 meeting, the Park Board approved the planting of sixty trees this fall. Fall is a great time of year for planting because it gives plants a long time to establish their root systems before the hot summer returns.

This year, the plantings will include shade and evergreen trees. Trees, of course, can provide shade, but they also provide other environmental benefits. Trees that absorb and store a large amount of water, such as the Bald Cypress, will be planted in areas in need of assistance with water absorption.

Washington Park baseball field project begins in mid-August

In mid-August, construction will begin at Washington Park as Elmhurst Park District staff removes the south baseball field. The proximity of the north and south baseball fields made it very difficult for simultaneous games to occur. Removing the south field will allow for greater open space in the park for soccer or other recreational sports.
