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.
The project will include removal of the fencing and old pathways, restoration and grading, and the removal of the infield. Work will begin in mid-August and should wrap-up by the end of September. The project will be done in phases, and snow fencing will remain in place throughout construction.
