Bolingbrook Park District to Install Five New Playgrounds

Bolingbrook Park District has released designs of all five playgrounds that are set to be built this summer. Four of the five playgrounds are a result of the successful 2018 referendum ask and the other is from a successful grant application. Demolition has already began on four of the playgrounds, with an estimated completion date of July

The five playgrounds slated to be completed in 2021 are:

  • Drafke Park (1125 Quail Run
  • The Forest (1399 Carriage Ln.)
  • Ivanhoe Park (190 Falconridge Way)
  • Plimmer Park (401 Lily Cache Ln.)
  • Century Park (1675 Apple Valley Dr.)

Century Park is the only playground not being renovated as result of the 2018 referendum ask. It is part of a larger project that is possible by being partially funded through an Illinois Department of Natural Resources Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development Grant. Other aspects of the project in includes:

  • Basketball Courts
  • Pickleball Courts
  • Gazebo
  • Improved Fishing Area
  • Pond Edge Enhancements
  • New Pathway

Completion of the Century Park project is expected to be sometime this fall. For more information on the referendum projects, please visit www.bolingbrookparks.org/referendum
