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

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.

  1. Dogs are strictly prohibited from all CPD events, except for special events where animals are part of the event with prior CPD approval; from all athletic fields, all tennis courts, all basketball courts; all playgrounds; and parks, except those designated as “Dog Friendly”.

  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.

  9. Dogs that exhibit aggressive behavior or nuisance barking, must be removed from the park immediately.

  10. Any person found in violation of this section shall be fined not less than $50 or more than $250
