Memorial Park Project Update (5/18/21):

We are on schedule for a late July/early August Grand Opening! Several additional loads of base stone were delivered this past weekend to ensure proper drainage on the courts. Please be aware that once the surface is installed, it will need to cure for up to 30 days before it is painted. Pauses in work are intentional and built into the construction schedule to ensure surface quality, longevity, and proper installation. Barring any significant increase in rain events, we are on schedule to open the new facility in late July/early August!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns at any time, you may contact the Community Park District's Executive Director - Jessica Cannaday at 708-354-4580.

Pet Policy Notice

We have seen a significant increase in people bringing dogs into park tennis courts. This is in direct violation of park district policy.

Dog waste in these courts is not only a public health issue, it is damaging to the courts-especially the courts at Stone Monroe Park, as they are covered in artificial turf.

Please remember it is the policy of the Community Park District not to allow pets in our parks. Out of respect to the welfare and full enjoyment of other park patrons, we ask that you leave your pets at home when visiting the park.

Please notify us if you see violations of this policy by emailing
