About the Homola Picnic Shelter
The Homola Picnic Shelter was constructed in the summer of 2012 and dedicated Aug. 18, 2012. The shelter was a collaborative effort between the Bloomingdale Park District and the Bloomingdale Athletic Club (BAC), with assistance of two grants made possible by Franco Coladipietro, then State Representative, 45th District of Illinois.
The Bloomingdale Lions Club built the Lion Bob Homola Pavilion in 1980 in memory of late mayor and Lion Bob Homola. It was removed in 2005 with the construction of The Oasis Water Park. The approximate 2,000-square foot building occupies land at the north end of the Park, between the roller hockey rink and the Westfield Middle School parking lot.
