Fabbrini Park – Glen Lake Road construction
The Village of Hoffman Estates will be working on a section of Glen Lake Road from Higgins to Fabbrini Park from May 1 to July 20. Although the road will be open, park visitors may want to use an alternate route to access the park via the north and east entrances, or to access the main entrance to the park via the following route: Hassel Road to Glen Lake to the park.
Community Park Playground
Replacement equipment is in, will be installed before Spring.
All the district’s playgrounds are on a rotation schedule, which results in new playground approximately every 15-18 years. In 2017 the district will remodel the playgrounds at Colony and Victoria parks. The sand area at Seascape will also be renovated. With the unusually warm weather we have experienced, staff is planning for an early start to the outdoor construction season. Playground equipment has been ordered with the expectation of delivery the week of April 10th. Award of the installation bids by the Board will allow the contractor to begin the renovations immediately in April.
