Crestview Park

This neighborhood park features sports fields, basketball courts and six pickleball courts. Crestview’s sledding hill is a popular neighborhood winter destination, while the picnic table and treehouse themed playground serve as summer hot spots. The park became the site of the Park District's first dedicated pickleball courts in fall 2020. Learn more about the pickleball courts and the 2020 ribbon cutting.

History: 

The property was originally purchased in 1963 and named after its previous occupant, Crestview School. The original purchase was for 7.47 acres; additional acreage was purchased from the School District through OSLAD funds in 1971 and 1980. In a combined effort by the Park District, the homeowners' association, and community clubs, the Crestview recreational building was built and dedicated in 1970, with an addition to the building in 1975. A playground was built in 1989 and two tennis courts were converted to two roller hockey courts in the late 1990s. The playground was renovated in 2005. The park became the site of the first dedicated pickleball courts in the Park District in fall 2020. A ribbon cutting was held, attended by members of the Elmhurst Pickleball Club who enjoyed some competitive play on the courts before and after the dedication.
