Memorial Park Project Update (9/15/21):

We have scheduled the grand opening for the Memorial Park Courts to Saturday, October 9. While all of the construction and infrastructure is complete, we are waiting on the delivery of surface paint and player benches. While we don't have an estimated delivery date for either, we anticipate the paint arriving first. If this is the case, we will open the courts as soon as the paint is installed. Please be aware that there will be safety cones blocking areas where the benches are planned to be installed.

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

Animals - No person shall bring any animal in or upon any CPD property without first obtaining a permit from the CPD, unless enrolled in a park district sponsored dog training program. Service animals are excluded from this policy

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.

  2. CPD “Dog Friendly Parks” are defined as: A. Memorial Park B. Hanesworth Park C. Robinhood Park D. Stone Monroe Park

  3. No person owning or keeping a dog shall allow such dog to run freely in any park, including “Dog Friendly Parks.”

  4. Dogs must be securely fastened and restrained by a leash not more than six feet in length at all times.

  5. Dog licenses and proof of vaccinations must be displayed on the dog’s collar.

  6. No person owning or keeping a dog shall allow such dog to enter upon or remain upon any area of the park utilized as an athletic field, court, children’s play area, or posted to prohibit dogs.

  7. Owners or keepers of dogs shall carry appropriate equipment to and shall immediately clean the dog’s waste and deposit the waste in an appropriate waste receptacle.

  8. Aggressive or nuisance animals are prohibited from all parks.
