Master Plans for the expansion of Glos Memorial Park and the development of Centennial Park were approved at the June 28 Park Board meeting. Open houses and surveys were conducted in spring 2021 for both projects, requesting feedback from the community regarding initial concepts. Another round of open houses were offered to give the community a chance to see the Master Plans before they were presented to the Board.
Update - This survey is now closed.

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.
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.
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.
We are working to enhance a park in your community and we need your help. Stop by our Open House at Glos Memorial Park from 6-7:30 p.m. on Monday, May 3 to give your opinion and ask questions about the development of the park.
