Work on the exterior redesign started in June. The roughly $500,000 project was fully funded, with half of the money coming a state grant that required matching funds.
The redesign includes the installation of pingpong and game tables, the resurfacing of the parking lot, the renovation of the outdoor garden, the installation of a flower bed island in the lot, brand new fencing, a new outdoor basketball court that could be converted into additional parking during the winter months, and a t-ball and soccer field designed for smaller children, among other improvements.
“For the past few months we have been working diligently to provide even more resources to the community of Maywood, and the opening of this new space is a hallmark in our efforts to accomplish just that,” said Lonette Hall, the park district’s executive director, in a statement. VFP
