This spring, residents can look forward to new trees coming to Park District parks. As the Park District works to maintain and update existing parks, open space and amenities, it realizes that the shade, beauty and environmental benefits trees provide are an important part of a park visitor's experience. At the February 12, 2018 board meeting, the Park Board approved a bid of $22,702 to plant 82 trees throughout the parks.
Every year the Park District plants new trees, some for general landscape, some for tree memorials and some to replace trees removed for maintenance needs. This year, some of the parks receiving trees include York Commons, Berens and Wilder Park, ensuring the Elmhurst community can continue to use these parks for enjoying nature and having fun.
