In 2017, as part of the Elmhurst Park District’s Vision 2020 plan, the District acquired 0S762 Old York Road for the future development of the District’s first dog park. In 2018, Upland Design was hired to conduct a site feasibility study, community outreach and develop a site master plan, which the Park Board approved on July 23, 2018. The District will engineer, bid and construct the dog park when funding becomes available. Progress continued in late March 2019, as contractors began clearing the standing dead and “garbage” trees which were creating an unsafe environment.
