The Park District of La Grange will host a Community Input Meeting at 6pm on Tuesday, June 13th, at Waiola Park, located at 500 S Waiola Ave., La Grange, to obtain ideas for new equipment and site amenities for Waiola Park.
The PDLG Comprehensive Master Plan was approved by the Board in November 2022, and the District is now moving forward with exploring the feasibility of completing projects indicated by our residents through the master planning phase.
The Park District intends to apply for an OSLAD grant this year for Waiola Park that will be announced the following year, if it is awarded.
Managed by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) grant program is a state-financed, matching grant program that provides funding assistance to local government agencies for acquisition and/or development of land for public outdoor recreation areas.
The Park District also invites you to come to Waiola Park the evening of Wednesday, June 28, 2023 at 6pm to see initial design concepts for Waiola Park and provide additional input for the site. If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like to provide feedback, please email Jenny Bechtold directly at email@example.com.
