Elmhurst families had a crisp and clear fall morning to celebrate the reopening of Salt Creek Park on Saturday, October 5. Board President Vince Spaeth and his fellow commissioners welcomed the community and invited everyone to enjoy the new playground after a short ribbon cutting ceremony.
Salt Creek Park is the Park District’s second oldest park. The original nine and half acres was purchased in 1927 for $20,000. An additional half acre was acquired in 1991. In the early years, the park was known for its swimming hole and its access to Salt Creek for fishing.
