A NEW PLAYGROUND IS COMING TO MAINE PARK
The large, main playground at Maine Park, originally installed in the summer of 1993, is scheduled for replacement in the Park District’s 2023 capital budget. Maine Park is a large community park which services all residents of Park Ridge. The playground is also heavily used by our camp participants in the summer.
A community input meeting was held on Tuesday, January 25, 2022 to gather feedback on three concept plans. A video of the meeting is available for those wishing to learn more about the project.

Residents were given the opportunity to provide input into the proposed plans through a survey. Thank you to those who participated! Feedback from the survey and the Park Board was used to revise the plan and develop a final concept.
The final concept was presented to the community at a virtual meeting held on April 5, 2022. A video of the meeting is available for those unable to attend.
