TEMPORARY CLOSURE NOTICE - Prospect Park Splash Pad

Thank you for your patience and support during the development and construction of Prospect Park. Since opening, we have loved seeing so many of you enjoying the various amenities of the new Park.  With all our parks and facilities, we continually evaluate usage and make improvements or adjustments as we see fit.  At the Prospect Park Splash Pad, we have continued to evaluate the surface and added slip resistant mats. Upon further evaluation, we have identified ways to take extra measures to further enhance safety. We have decided to make these enhancements now, rather than later. We will be applying a clear sealer with polypropylene grit to create texture and improve the slip resistance.  Therefore, the Prospect Park Splash Pad will temporarily close beginning Tuesday, July 5. We anticipate the Splash Pad to reopen on Friday, July 8, however, this work is weather dependent. Please check back here for the most up-to-date information on re-opening.

Reforestation

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has had a devastating effect on both the Park Ridge community and the Park District. Ash trees are plentiful in our area, and unfortunately, many have been infected with this disease. The Park Ridge Park District has developed a reforestation plan to identify infected trees targeted for removal and determine recommendations for future tree plantings. Read more about the trees currently being removed, and the new trees that will be planted this fall with the monies raised by the Park Ridge Friends of the Parks 100 Trees for 100 Years program.

Looking for the perfect gift for the person who has everything?

Continued funding to replace trees lost to disease throughout the Park Ridge parks remains, and as a result, the Park Ridge Friends of the Parks accepts ongoing donations for this cause through the Trees Forever program. Contributions are tax-deductible according to IRS laws. Donate online using the following links, or by mail.  Donations in honor of a friend or family are recognized with an engraved leaf on a bronze memorial tree located in the lobby at Maine Park Leisure Center at the following levels:
