Open Space and Land Acquisition Development Grant
Feb 2nd, 2024
Governor Pritzker announced on January 31st, the Oregon Park District is a recipient of $600,000 in Open Space and Land Acquisition Development grant funding. The Oregon Park District is excited to utilize these funds to improve the existing recreation amenities at Oregon Park East. Improvements will include a new playground, basketball court, 9 hole disc golf course, a 1/4 mile paved trail, ADA improvements, expanded parking lot and interpretive signage. Additionally, the District plans to add lighting to the existing baseball field and replace the field fencing and complete drainage improvements.
Plans for these improvements began in 2019 with a park master plan. Grant funding allows the District the opportunity to complete these improvements and continue to provide exceptional park facilities to our community and park users.
Park construction is expected to begin in 2025.
