Cook Park Playground Replacement


The Village Board recently selected a playground design to replace existing playground equipment within Cook Park. The design includes pour-in-play rubber surface for ADA accessibility, two slides, two expression swings which allow an adult and child to swing together, several climbing features and ground level music play options. The Village received a grant to help fund the project through the Illinois Parks and Recreation Association’s Promote Play and Recreation grant which covers 50% of the cost of the main playground structure. The playground is anticipated to be replaced in late spring/early summer, weather permitting. The existing playground equipment will be donated to Kids Around the World a nonprofit organization that repurposes used playground equipment in other countries. Replacement of the playground is in line with the Parks Master Plan which was approved by the Village Board in October of 2018 to help guide park development decisions for the next fifteen years.
